Eaton Hill Nature Center

500 City Hill Road
Sonora, TX 76950


Sonora is located at the western edge of the magnificent Texas Hill Country. The landscape is a unique convergence of the Hill Country and the Chihuahuan Desert, containing flora and fauna from both of these extraordinary regions.   Eaton Hill Wildlife Sanctuary is a 37 acre nature park offering over 3 miles of hiking trails and showcasing a diverse array of plant and wildlife. In addition to the many wildflowers and varieties of cactus, visitors will encounter numerous points of interest along the trails as the terrain transforms with nearly every footstep. Admire Old Glory flying high atop the hill, explore Native American culture at the replicated dwelling, discover Sonora's wilder history along the Outlaw Trail, see a painted bunted or perhaps even a Texas horny toad, and examine marine fossils preserved in the limestone rocks.   Several picnic areas await you.   Eaton Hill Wildlife Sanctuary trails conveniently connect with the Historic Downtown Walking Tour featuring the magnificent Sutton County Courthouse, as well as the beautiful Community Prayer Garden.
