Story:
A tree ID trail with a special surprise at the turn around point. Here you will find the second largest bur oak in the entire state of Texas. This was the largest until a few years ago when the new champ was found only a few miles away. Both are close to the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.

Hey, this is a really cool place. Now I know where it is. I've looked for it before but directions were schetchy.
