‘Found Maples’ display their colors at Kerrville prayer garden

Big tooth maples are changing into their fall colors at The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden. The Kerrville site has two groves of the maples, with the larger grove containing 42 of the colorful trees. 

About 200,000 people a year visit the famous Lost Maples State Natural Area near Vanderpool. Most visitors come to see an isolated stand of rare, bigtooth maple trees. In October, November and December, the trees transition from green to brilliant yellow, orange and red.

These dazzling trees are sprinkled across the 2,906-acre wilderness park, about 45 miles southwest of Kerrville.
