This well-marked loop trail skirts the perimeter of the arboretum and gives a taste of the variety of flora and fauna there. A short out-and-back path leads to Buffalo Bayou and a bird-watching platform. Depending on the season, it is possible to see an alligator near the bayou. This area has perfect habitat for birds, mammals, and snakes. The nature center at the trailhead is well worth visiting for its displays and hands-on exhibits.
