I hiked the trails at Lost Maples as a part of a hiking group.  We hiked the East and West Trails.  There are some fairly steep hills to climb, but they're not too long or difficult.  The views at the top are nice.

The signage in this park is very good.  Some areas are very scenic, but I was shocked by the lack of water in the creeks and rivers.  Many of them were bone dry.  Still, this is one of the nicer places to hike and would recommend it to others.  My understanding is that the leaves "turn" at the end of October/early November, so this would be an ideal time to go.  It should also be a lot cooler then.
