Champion Canyon Rim Woodlands Trail - UTC 005

North Newton County

(1 Mile N of HWY 87 & 255R Intersection)

80 acres with Texas Forestry Woodlands Trails (1.6 miles), owned/maintained by Champion

Champion has constructed trails around the rim of the canyon, and a number of Pineywoods breeding birds may be easily seen here during a late spring hike. Louisiana Waterthrushes nest along the creek that flows through the bottom of the canyon, and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Yellow-throated and Red-eyed vireos, and Black-and-white Warblers are among the interesting woodland birds that may be found here. If you continue north on TX 87, you will eventually intersect a Red-cockaded Woodpecker group that straddles the highway near the Newton/Sabine county line.
