Well, that's my opinion, anyways.  :)  For me, this trail has almost everything I like - hills, distance, solitude, good signage, lots to see, etc.

This was my first venture into the Lone Star Hiking Trail (LSHT) and I decided to do the South Wilderness Loop.  I started my hike at Trailhead #4, catch the Little Lake Creek Trail (LLCT), to the Sand Branch Trail, to the LSHT, to the Pole Creek Trail and back to TH4.

The trail was very isolated.  I only saw a few people and that was at the midpoint of my hike.  At times, you really feel like you're way in the wilderness and then you'll stumble across a country home or ranch.  The trail is very well marked and although there were several fallen trees blocking the trail, it was well-maintained overall.
