Spanning more than 150 acres, the Live Oak Wilderness Trail is the crown jewel of Fredericksburg’s recreational parks. The park was named after the 36th First Lady of the United States and is the premier location for outdoor recreation in Fredericksburg. The Live Oak Wilderness Trail is a perfect representation of the park’s diverse habitats.

About Live Oak Wilderness Trail

Lady Bird Park straddles Live Oak Creek, which feeds both the tall grasses and ancient Oak trees that cover the park’s landscape. Although grassy hills roll far into the distance, the foliage close to the Live Oak Creek can be quite dense. The diverse habitats at Lady Bird Park offer a serene habitat for both visitors and wildlife.

Activities Along the Live Oak Wilderness Trail

Visitors eager to learn about the Live Oak Wilderness trail can pick up a trail guide and a birding checklist at the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park’s office. The Live Oak Wilderness trail is a one-mile trail along Live Oak Creek that spans the diversity of the park’s habitats. Visitors enjoy identifying riparian woodland, post-oak savannah, short grass meadows, and lakeside marshlands.   Interpretive signs along the trail inform visitors about the habitats they are traversing and the wildlife that lives in each one. Hikers can also enjoy learning about several of the 300+ species of birds that frequent Texas Hill Country and Lady Bird Johnson Park.
