This was my second hike in the Lone Star Hiking Trail - Wilderness Section.  This time I took it a little easier since my legs were still sore from the day before.  I did the North Wilderness Loop at a leisurely pace.

My hike started at Trailhead #3, to the LSHT, up to the North Wilderness Trail, and then back to TH3.  This trail was more populated than the South Wilderness Loop and easier, too.  No major changes in elevation.  I did not like it quite as much as the South Wilderness Loop, but it was still a great hike.

One of the hidden jewels of Texas, the Lone Star Hiking Trail is the only long-distance National Recreation Trail in the state. At 128 miles (including loop trails), it is also the state's longest continuously marked and maintained footpath. Located in the famed Big Thicket area in east Texas, the trail is well-suited for both short and long hikes (of up to 10 days), appealing to dayhikers, overnight backpackers and long-distance hikers. The LSHT lies between the major metro centers of Houston-Galveston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio--home to more than 8 million people just a 2-hour drive from the trail. The author, a Texas native, is an experienced long-distance hiker who has thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and many other nationally recognized long-distance trails throughout the U.S. This is the first guidebook to the trail and is officially endorsed and promoted by the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club.
