Dam construction update: starting on June 1, LLELA visitors will not be able to cross the outlet works. There will be no access to the Bittern Marsh Trail or east side of the river. Sometime soon (date currently unknown), all access east of the Cicada Pavilion will be prohibited for about 8 weeks. This will include the following areas and trails: Bittern Marsh Trail, kayaking and fishing in the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, all camping areas, and the Redbud Trail. Only the Blackjack, Green Dragon, Cottonwood, and Cicada Trails will be open during that time.
Join us for our monthly naturalist-led nature walk. Each season at LLELA is different, and we never know what we’ll find—deer tracks, autumn leaves, blooming wildflowers, nesting songbirds, butterflies and much more. The hike will last about two hours, and all ages are welcome. There is no additional fee for this hike, just LLELA’s regular gate fee ($5/vehicle). Reservations are not required. Meet at the Cicada Pavilion. Gatehouse staff can direct you to this location. Check our calendar for upcoming dates. For more information contact email@example.com.
