What our partners

  say about us.


“The Forest Trail is an essential resource in our tourism development and regional networking. Being a member of the TFTR has made it possible to reach a market previously unavailable to us. All this plus great workshops! We love the Texas Forest Trail Region!”

-- Carolyn Teague, The Mount Vernon Main Street Alliance



“Partnering with the Forest Region has been a boon for Kilgore. Our marketing efforts have amplified greatly with the consultation support and also the exposure that Kilgore receives on the Region’s social media channels. We are the richer for being a part of the Texas Forest Trail Region!”

-- Ryan Polk, Kilgore Chamber & Visitors Bureau


“The Texas Forest Trail provides a partnership for our community like no other in Texas. The support and services that are available to our staff and community have proven to be invaluable as we continue to evolve in this competitive environment. Having a partner that takes time to research and promote what we have to offer helps us keep Palestine on the map.”

-- Mary Raum, Palestine Texas Tourism


“Tyler loves partnering with the Forest Region. It really is the best way to combine all of our marketing efforts to get the biggest bang for our buck. When one of us wins, we all win!“

-- Holli Conley Fourniquet, Visit Tyler
