Woodlands Trail Closure
The Woodlands Trail in the Big Sandy Creek Unit will be closed August 19-29 and September 2-12, 2014, while park staff and an AmeriCorps crew apply herbicide to trifoliate orange, an invasive non-native shrub that has become problematic in that area.
The fun of exploring the Big Thicket lies in discovery. Join a ranger to look for carnivorous plants, blooming wildflowers, colorful mushrooms, animal signs, and more on this easy 1-mile hike. Meet at the Sundew Trailhead with water and good walking shoes. The trailhead is located on CR 1910, 0.5 mile south of FM 2827, about 7 miles north of the Big Thicket Visitor Center.
