Restoration Research Trail

The 1 mile Restoration Research Trail features the landscape restoration research area, a living laboratory where we study the ecology 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.

Take the Restoration Research Trail for an interpreted look at our landscape restoration research. You can learn how fire, grazing and mowing affect the growth of native grasses. See the green roof research plot, where various mini-roofs planted with native species transmit real-time data on temperature and stormwater runoff.
