Long Nature hike close to Dallas

Me and my gf went on a Saturday to check out Bonham state park.  The park attendent was amazing and really freindly, and he gave us a trail map.  Once we were on the trails they became pretty confusing, and branched out in many directions with very few markings and signs that werent very acurate.  We eventually found our way back around to the lake, and walked the entire lake loop, where we did spot a Bald Eagle (I do have pics).  Other than that, we saw very little wildlife, but it was winter.  Overall, the hike was great for walking, and next time we might bring the bikes out.  This is a great place to take a family for a weekend camp/hiking trip close to the Dallas area, yet still far enough away from the city to enjoy nature. 

Great get-a-away trail

We took the chance and going to the trails on the 4th of July... thinking the park would be overwhelmed, but we were surprized how few people were there. It made the hike fun and easy to manuver with a few semi-steep hills. Overall the trails are cleared with alot of trees to rest under. It's shared with bikers and hikers alike, so be attentive and take alot of agua. :-)

 

 

Great little park w/ a great little trail

Bonham is a great park to get away from the world at. I have visited approx 6 times and only once seen more than 8 people in the park. The trail is great but can be confusing. The signage and maps aren't the best. Both the inner (lake) and outer loops are good walks. The outer loop takes you through several different forest enviroments and past the old water tower and pump house.
Nice easy quite hike (weekday)

I enjoyed this trail because of the old CCC pump house and picnic areas that are overgrown now.
Nice trails, lots of shade

A great hike with kids, Bonham is lightly used state park at least in winter. Many trees, but didn't see much wildlife.

Cool and rainy. Muddy trail but we still had a good time.
