Leaves on Trail Although it was early September on this hike, the leaves on the trail made it look a bit like Autumn.

This is a very nice walk along the lake and mostly through the woods. Senic, with lots of birds and some wildlife. Worth the trip to East Texas.
A well-maintained trail

Although my wife and I have ridden our bikes on the trails at this park, this was our first time to hike them. We started at the trailhead just east of the trailer dump station. We followed the loop trail past the trout pond (sign says limit of 5 per person per day) and two primitive camping areas. From there, the trail crosses a park road and into the most unique area of the hike: a steep slope down into a creek bottom with a set of two bridges. From there, we passed by a brim pond and then came out in the day use area. We re-entered the woods on another trailhead and walked along a cove of the lake, then retraced our steps back to the main trail loop. This time, we took the southern loop where we came across several deer. Once back at the trailhead where our car was parked, we crossed the park road again and followed a well documented interpretive trail that led to the Fort Sherman Camping Area. From there, we followed a park road back to our car. The trail is in excellent shape. The only people we saw on the trail were two park employees who were working on the trail. We plan to return in the fall to enjoy the colors.

We did a trail that went around the end of the lake and was in woods.
