Long description

Comfort was settled in 1854 and is rich in German Heritage. A large portion of the downtown area is included in the National Register of Historic Places. The route passes the German-language Treur de Union Monument (True to the Union). It was dedicated on August 10, 1866 to commemorate Union supporters who died at the 1862 Nueces massacre. The remains of the deceased are buried at the site of the monument. The community has quaint shops, antique stores, wineries and various eating establishments. The 5K route includes the town area while the 10K portion also meanders along the shady Cypress Creek. Open Wednesday-Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Closed on Monday & Tuesday.
