The Breathtaking Overlook In Texas That Lets You See For Miles And Miles
Texas has plenty of
scenic drives and overlooks, but Devil’s Backbone just might be the most underrated. It provides a stunning panoramic view of the Hill Country while being quiet enough to hear a pin drop. See for yourself:
You'll find the overlook on Farm Road 32 near Canyon Lake. It's part of Devil's Backbone, a 51-mile loop that takes about an hour and a half to drive in its entirety.
A picnic table provides the perfect opportunity for a romantic afternoon lunch with your better half. It overlooks the rolling hills and sweeping valleys of the 400-mile long Balcones Fault, making it an idea scene for a photoshoot or family picture.
These panoramic views are like nothing you've ever seen. It's almost as if the entire Hill Country is visible from this perspective!
Classic cars and motorcycles are a common sighing at Devil's Backbone. Maybe it's because there's a tavern down the road, or perhaps the drivers are just searching for the best angle to photograph their baby - but whatever the reason, you'll meet some interesting folks up here.
You can practically hear a pin drop at the overlook. Nothing quite compares to the stillness of being on a country road in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by stunning natural beauty.
Be sure to plan your trip soon after a decent amount of rain. The hillsides come alive with lush greenery and look absolutely breathtaking.
And, as with most places in Texas, Devil's Backbone looks even more beautiful at sunrise or sunset. Don't forget your camera!
