We were a week too late for the bluebonnets (our fault), but saw many other beautiful flowers along the trail, and even found a couple of great patches of bluebonnets. We are going back at the right time next year.

This year, although a light viewing of bluebonnets, the trails were beautiful. We were a little late as the bluebonnets popped out early because of the heat. Beautiful trip throughout the year!

When driving the trail, be aware of others who randomly pull over to take a photo! Signal your intentions when you want to stop or drive slow. Save drivers makes the day more beautiful!
