The Capitol Trail of Trees - A Guide to the Historic and Significant Trees on the Texas Capitol Grounds - Welcome to the Texas Capitol Trail of Trees. This guide is designed to help you recognize and appreciate 25 tree species found on the historic Capitol grounds. The trail starts at the State Seal of Texas located on the steps just outside the south Capitol entrance door. The trees are marked with numbered signs. The trail is a little less than a mile and can be traveled comfortably in about an hour.
