Fort Davis' Scenic Loop...FM 505 is a long, mostly flat stretch of road that allows you to see large swaths of land and sky with very little evidence of man in the way. It is a wonderful place to see raptors and sometimes pronghorn. To get there, head south from Van Horn, through Valentine. About seven miles south of Valentine, there's a turnoff to the east...that's 505.
This road had a starring role in a sweet film about small town Texas (starring Fort Davis), called "Dancer, Texas, Pop. 81". In fact a view of the road begins this movie!
