New England doesn’t have a corner on “leaf peepers.” The country roads of East Texas are lined with cars in both spring and fall to catch the breathtaking beauty of the trees.
Many visitors are surprised that this area has an even greater variety of tree species than New England. The best viewing for spring foliage is from mid-March to early April when the woods are blooming with dogwood, redbud and vast arrays of wild flowers.
Conroe is located on the southwestern-most part the Texas Historical Commission’s Texas Forest Trail. The scenic trail passes through Conroe and loops around and through the Sam Houston National Forest.
The Texas Forest Trail Region consists of 35 counties in East Texas from Red River County in the north to Jefferson County in the south. Watch for the blue and white Texas Forest Trail signs marking the region. This scenic driving trail offers hundreds of sites for travelers interested in cultural and heritage tourism.
