This was my third hike in the Wilderness Section of the Lone Star Hiking Trail (LSHT).  This time I did both the Sand Branch Loop and Richards Loop to finish the Wilderness Section.

I parked at Trailhead #2 and hiked the LSHT down to the Sand Branch Trail, up the Little Lake Creek Loop Trail to TH1, then back down the LSHT to TH#2.  The trails were well marked and there were several ponds along the way.  Lots of fallen trees across the trails.  Given the millions of trees in the Sam Houston National Forest, I guess this is pretty normal.  Park volunteers do maintain the trails on a periodic basis.  No complaints here.  Wonderful way to spend a day!
