If you are in the area it's a beautiful park and you should take time to do this 2 1/2 mile hike. (Photo by David Satterfield) (Photo by )

I was expecting a longer hike for going thru the entire park, but it was nice that it parallels the lake on and off but not the whole time. We took the outer loop hoping for a slow grade up the "hill". Instead we ended up with a pretty steep climb for East Texas that follows the outer boundary of the park.

I work at the park and have hiked this trail many times!  Its a great trail for easy scenic walking.  It has a nice length and we keep it well maintained.  In summer months you definitely want to take water.  A self-guided booklet is available in the visitor center for free.  As always watch for snakes!  Probably the best time to hike this is first thing in the morning to avoid crowds of people.

Scenic Hike

Hiked this trail in the rain, but our footing was very good. The tall trees provide a very good canopy. At times the trail follows along the bank of the lake and a small jetty.  This trail, as well as the rest of the park, is a great place for the whole family. The more experienced hiker may get bored at first, but the scenic views and small ridge pay off in the end. Higly recommended.

My friends and I have biked this trail many times. It's short but it's fun and has nice scenery going around the lake. Bike it a few times for a good workout then go swim in the lake.
Crowded in the fall

It was the first truly cool day of fall, and there were plenty of people in the park. Although we arrived early, people were already scurrying about. There was a large scout troop divided into smaller groups and they were wandering everywhere on some type of scavenger hunt. Once we got away from the trailhead, the number of people we met reduced considerably. Near the east end of the trail, a couple of bike riders came barreling down a hill and around a curve and my wife and I had to jump off the trail quickly. One of the things I like about this trail is that it skirts several campgrounds. On this early, cool morning, we enjoyed picking up the smell of camp fires and bacon. We've hiked this trail before when it was not nearly as busy. I hope to return in another month or so when the leaves start turning.
