Sites and Attractions in Red River County

  • One of the most beautiful and pristine old-growth forests in the state, the 1,400-acre Lennox Woods Preserve is a vital refuge for several rare plant and animal species, all of which rely on the waters of Pecan Bayou, the largest undammed watershed in northeast Texas and what many consider the focus of the return of the black bear. The old-growth timber and cathedral-like canopy of these woods thought to be typical of the undisturbed floodplains throughout the state prior to the arrival of settlers.
