Comments: Little Creek Loop/Pole Creek/LS Hiking/Sandy Bottom Never saw another sole, trails very badly maintained. The GPS showed almost 1 mile of movement trying to find where the trail went. Bridges sometimes were unsafe. Do not wear shorts. Lots of Posion ivy and briars. Lots of dead trees and downed trees? Lots of creek crossings makes it not so dull of a hike. Despite all complaints I did enjoy the 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.
