After many years of hearing and reading about the Ennis Bluebonnet Experience (tm) I decided it was time. So my wife and I drove down I-45 on a quiet weekday and visited the trails. The views were fantastic, and the bluebonnets were superb. I recommend...More

Make time to go by Bluebonnet Park. It’s a beautiful drive around the Bluebonnet Trail. We enjoyed the many stops in the relaxing time together. Highly recommended in April.

The Bluebonnet Trail was simply beautiful and spectacular and amazing. What a nice activity on a beautiful day to see Texas’s native State Flower in full bloom. A must visit for anyone.

If nature is your thing the bluebonnets in Ennis are worth the trip! Indian paintbrush are here and there among the bluebonnets - which are vast and lovely! Mornings and evenings are your best photo opportunities. We were in direct light which washes out the...More

We had been disappointed driving around Hill Country with their recent draught. Not so in Ennis. Get maps at visitor center and enjoy the beautiful sights, Bing

I recommend stopping at Visitor Center in the heart of town by RR track. They can route your map for you.
