Celebrating 65 Years of Ennis Bluebonnet Trails
Apr 01, 2016 10:56AM
Ennis was designated in 1997 as the official home of the Texas Bluebonnet Trail and will showcase more than 40 miles of mapped driving Bluebonnet Trails from April 1 to 30, sponsored by the Ennis Garden Club. These trails are the oldest in the state, and tens of thousands of visitors also make the short hop to Ennis for the Bluebonnet Festival, with music, flowers and fun from April 15 though 17.
Each year, native bluebonnets appear on different trails; they typically peak around the third week of April, but that can vary with the weather. To experience the trails with a garden club expert guide, there is a two-hour step-on guide service available with advance reservations.
Tour cost is $50. For more information on this service and fun sample itineraries for tour groups, call 972-878-4748 or visit BlueBonnetTrail.org.
