Loop Thru The Woods

Good Signage
This section of the LSHT is well-marked. It is hard to get lost, but it is still always a good idea to take a printed trail map since there are Forest Service Roads and unofficial trails running through the area.

I hiked with a friend through the woods.  We did the North Wilderness Loop to the Sand Branch Loop.  Weather was cool and nice.  Lot of trees down in the Sam Houston National Forest, but this is normal.  Nothing major that could not be overcome.

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.
