The Ebony Trail offers a brief meander through the Texas ebony-anuaca woodlands, a habitat considered one of the most endangered plant communities in the United States. Shortly thereafter, the ADA-accessible trail deposits hikers at an observation deck and a boardwalk along the namesake resaca. The observation deck hovers indiscreetly over the resaca banks, and the wooden boardwalk levitates visitors above the resaca itself, allowing an opportunity for a more intimate examination of the resaca’s dark and pungent waters. The restoration of the resaca took a bit of clever engineering in order to secure this threatened bit of the state’s original natural world.
