Location: Trail Between The Lakes

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 28.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 54 minutes


This could really be a nice hike! two sons and a good buddy and I tried it after Rita.  The hike turned into an obstacle course of fallen trees.  Large areas were obscured by massive tangles of fallen trees.  We literally had to often get on hands and knees.  We often lost the trail and had to back-track.

That being said, there were some really nice areas.

We saw NOT A SINGLE PERSON during out time on the trail.

A repaired Trail Between the Lakes could be a really nice three-days and two night outing.

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.
