Comments: An easy walk through a portion of an East Texas forest--plenty of pine trees and dogwoods. Solitude was awesome. We saw no one, and had to drive to the boonies before we even started. We hiked part of the 4 C's trail-about four miles round trip. Nice foot bridges along the way. Easy path to follow especially with the tree markers to guide you. Started where 522 crosses the 4 C's trail at Walnut Creek and went to Pond Camp and then back again. A good one to take younger children on if you want to do a primitive overnighter. The Walnut Creek campground is only about a mile off the main road 511 and is an easy hike in and out. There is even a wooden shelter off the ground (lean-to with floor). There are tent pads and even a fire ring.
