Stayed on the east end of the State Park near the Brazos River. Very nice trails--lots of benches, great solitude. When I reached the Bluebonnet trail, I started heading east and I saw an amazing huge oak tree.

Nice shady place to hike in the hot weather. Love to canoe Armand Bayou, too.
My intro to Lone Star Hiking Trail
Lone Star Hiking Trail - Stubblefield Section - 4/28/2005  [View Log Page]
Rating: 3stars Difficulty: 1star Solitude: 4stars
Distance: 4.00 Miles Duration: N/A
I started at mile 0 on the west side of the Natl Forest. Just wanted to get my feet wet and get a taste. Lots of shade from pines, oaks, etc. Downhill for the first few klicks. Kinda got the creeps when critters kept stirring around in the calf-high ferns. Never saw them but they were making lots of noise and it was kinda funny watching the ferns move above them. Trees didn't interfere with GPS. Saw horse tracks--this trail is only for hiking. Bugs were a little bothersome--had to pul my sweatband over my ears. Definitely better to hike in fall and spring. The whole Forest was empty of people. Only two other campers at Stubblefield. I like Stubblefield camping area. The camp host was great. I may bring my tipi next time. Also a good place to bike on the 60 miles of multiuse trail and canoe up the west fork of the San Jacinto River. The Lone Star Trail seems like a good way to hike only in daily sections--that way you won't have to do any primitive camping. Lots of loops and one could just call your better half at camp to come and get you. Cingular Cell phone strength varied quite a bit, but mostly very low. It'll be interesting to see how busy it is in the summer. I was surprised to find a very good narrative description of the area in the _Official Guide To Texas Wildlife Management Areas_. SHNF has great biking, hiking, target shooting, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, camping, birding, & canoeing.
