The Redbud trail runs from the Pavillion to the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and then proceeds upstream toward the dam. It is a loop trail that passes through the lowlands. It may be muddy or covered with water when rainfall has been heavy. Many animals use this area and tracks are plentiful. Fishing and birding opportunities are abundant in this area of LLELA.

Oh my. This was lovely. I especially enjoyed going to the dam where there were so many herons. I even witnessed one flying into the water, catching a fish & swallowing it. Majestic. Loads of wildflowers too.

My kid got stung by a bee within the first quarter mile. It’s probably an okay trail. We made it to where the trail opens to the field next to the river. Might try it again, but I think there are more interesting trails.

This trail is fantastic for animal tracking. Coyote, raccoon, white tail deer, armadillo, bobcat and more are evident from tracks and scat. Birding near the river is spectacular: winter and Spring feature bald eagles, Osprey, blue-wing teals, and more. The vegetation is alternately bottomland hardwood and restoration prairie. An easy walk; go to the river and back or take the loop through the spacious campgrounds. Campgrounds connect to the river put-in site for kayak/canoes.
