Description

Ironwood is the longest trail in the park when Brazos Bottom and Copperhead are closed. Stephen F. Austin State Park consists of 473 acres and several habitats, including wetland aquatic and hardwood forest. Dominant tree species in the park include cedar elm, hickory, Osage orange, green ash, cottonwood, sycamore, and hackberry to name a few. Throughout the park, forest canopies shelter dense undergrowth vegetation of coralberry, dwarf palmetto, American beautyberry, possumhaw, yaupon, grapevine, Alabama supplejack, and the abundant Turk's cap with its beautiful red blooms.
