Approximately three miles west of Palo Pinto, Texas, on U. S. Highway 80, is a typical rock city known as Lovers' Retreat. The locality, one of several rock cities in Palo Pinto County, is roughly rectangular in shape and extends for a thousand feet or more along the north side of the highway. Lovers' Retreat is well known in Texas and people come from all parts of the state to picnic in the groves along Eagle Creek and to explore the narrow passsageways between the huge blocks of limestone on the north side of the stream.
