"The Bluebonnet Trails" Ennis Off The Beaten Path Tip by keeweechic

Ennis Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 13 photos


The Ennis area is known for their spring showing of bluebonnets and some 42 miles of trails which have been created there to drive around. The Texas Legislature named them “The Official Bluebonnet Trail of Texas.” Bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas and their wider spread of distribution in the state was instigated by President Lyndon B Johnson’s wife (Lady Bird Johnson) in her attempt to beautify Texas. The cobalt blue flowers pop up along freeways, carpet the hills and paddocks and pretty much flower wherever seeds are dropped. Their showing draws something like 50,000 people every year.
