Utopia: The town of Utopia is located 23 miles north of Sabinal at the intersection of Highway 187 and FM 1050, along the banks of the lovely, Cypress-lined Sabinal River. Founded by settlers in 1852 and originally called Waresville, this canyon of exceptional scenery was already rich in the history of Spanish explorers and Paleo-Indians. Several historic buildings, a city park, restaurants, and shops including antiques, will be of interest. Visit the Sabinal Canyon Museum in Utopia to view pioneer farm implements and household items, Indian artifacts, geological exhibits, and WWII memorabilia. No trip would be complete without hiking the nearby Lost Maples State Natural Area. Each fall, Uvalde Bigtooth Maple trees burst into a spectacular blaze of color around the last two weeks of October through the first two weeks of November. Call the Lost Maples fall foliage line, (830) 966-3413, for an update.
