Cross Timbers Trail

Just west of the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces, the Persimmon Grove is a gateway into the Garden's 110 acres of natural beauty. Visitors can explore the native flora and fauna found in the unique Cross Timbers ecoregion - where the tallgrass prairies from the west meet the eastern deciduous forests. The convergence of these two habitats offers an abundance of life and diversity. Each season offers something different: wildflowers, migrating birds, butterflies, changing leaves and majestic grasses.

The Cross Timbers Trail is approximately one and a half miles in length originating from and looping back to the Persimmon Grove. The path is mowed in the prairie with many rocks along the trail in the forest. Benches can be found along the trail.

Tips for this trail: comfortable walking/hiking shoes, hat, water bottle, insect repellent.
