There is only one giant metal spur left. Still worth the stop. Easy access and parking.

Giant Metal Spurs

There are three giant metal spurs out in front of a welding and metalworking shop on the edge of Hico. The tallest spur is at least 20 feet tall, so you can't miss it! They're just off the side of the road on 281, on the north end of town (on the right if you're driving north).
