  • Nice, forested, and relatively quiet park. We stopped briefly at the visitor center and then went for a short walk at the Kirby Nature Trail down the road. I love how dense the “thicket” is.  more »
  • Very interesting place! The preserve covers a lot of land with a multitude of different ecosystems. Very well maintained grounds and the visitor's center was well done and informative. Mary K was a super guide, we very much enjoyed the whole experience! I'll definitely be back.
  • The Big Thicket is unique in N. America.There are several plant Association and soil types and many rare plants. It is most comfortable to visit in the spring and fall but it is worth the effort to brave the summer heat and winter damp to discover the variety of plants and fungi in the thicket.
