The 1/4 mile John Barr Trail is the perfect place to become familiar with the trees, shrubs, and cacti of the Texas Hill Country.
The Hill Country trail system is divided into two connecting trails: the John Barr Trail (1/4 mile) and the Restoration Research Trail (1 mile). The entrance to both trails is across the staff parking area. The Hill Country trails feature the Center's outdoor classrooms: Persimmon, Elbow-bush, Agarita and Cedar Elm. These trails are ADA accessible.
In the Spring, look for blooming prickly pear as well as bluebonnets, damanita, coreopsis, pavonia and bitterweed. In winter, watch for colorful pencil cactus.
