The history of the Scenic Loop Road area spans thousand of years, but is ready to create new memories
In an area steeped in history, Cantera Hills joins Grey Forest and the surrounding area as the newest chapter in an intriguing story. With as many ranches as retail centers nearby, the history of the Scenic Loop Road area spans several thousand years and has many interesting tales to tell.
Located at the base of the Hill Country, Scenic Loop Road is a winding byway that was created as a scenic touring route for San Antonians in the 1920s. The Scenic Loop was originally 46.3 miles roundtrip from downtown San Antonio and was built to connect with the Boerne Stage Road.
A drive along the route reveals evidence of prehistoric sites, 19th century rock structures, historic ranches and farms, abundant wildlife habitat and the Old Spanish Trail.
The Boerne post office and stage stop was opened by in 1856. In 1887, the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad began daily treks to Boerne from San Antonio, replacing the use of the stagecoach.
