072822 museum display

Polk County Memorial Museum has a new informational display on the Big Thicket National Preserve which includes trail maps and unit descriptions. Did you know that one of the units of the Preserve is in Polk County? It is the Big Sandy Creek Unit, with trailheads near FM-1276, near the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation. This unit has three trails : Woodlands Trail; Beaver Slide Trail; and Big Sandy Trail. The Big Sandy Trail is an equestrian/bicycle trail - the only one in the Preserve that allows horses and bicycles. There is also a water trail at Big Sandy, the Big Sandy Creek Corridor Unit, which allows kayaks and canoes (no motorized boats.) Come by and plan your next hike! Polk County Memorial Museum is located at 514 W. Mill Street in Livingston. There is no fee to visit the museum. All maps and brochures are free. The museum is open 9 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Friday and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays. Courtesy photos
