Description

The Barred Owl Trail begins by leaving the road and quickly entering the trees. In a short length, it pops into an opening before diving back into the woods on its way to the Brazos. Eventually, the trail parallels the Brazos to offer pleasant water views before reaching a junction with the Fishbone Trail and Sycamore Trail. Continue through the intersection on the Fishbone Trail to reach its true end at a junction with the Ironwood Trail.

Flora & Fauna

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.
