When European settlers first arrived in Central Texas, much of the Hill Country was a savanna - a softly undulating expanse of grass punctuated with oaks and junipers. Because of fire suppression and overgrazing, few of these savannas remain today. The Wildflower Center works to restore the savanna to its original character which you can experience through our trails.

NOTE: Due to heavy rains, trails may be rough. The Restoration Research Trail remains closed awaiting repair. (Updated: March 7, 2016)
