Resaca de la Palma boasts the largest tract of native habitat in the World Birding Center network. Etched by ancient curves of the Rio Grande, its 1200 semi-tropical acres provide a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of an international urban center only a few miles away. The visitors’ center is the portal to over 6 miles of trails, 4 decks that overlook the 4 miles of resaca, and a 3.2 mile tram loop that winds through the park, a tram leaves the visitor center every hour. Visitors need to park in the parking lot; private vehicles are not allowed within the park. Resaca’s many trails can be accessed by tram, hiking, biking or walking.
