The trail was very well marked, and Don Brewington's 'Hiker's Guide' was invaluable ( see http://www.lshtclub.com/Hiker%27s%20Guide.htm ). An excellent primitive camp spot: at mile 11.5, just before Caney Creek on the left. Only problem was at (about) mile 21 where trail markers ended (or I couldn't find them); i backtracked and walked around via Stubblefield Lake Road and then along FM1374 to the east. All bridges were in good repair. A very flat walk, so I'd call it easy. I only met three hikers (group of day hikers) and -- crossing an easement -- two horsewomen. This is a great hike for 'getting away' by oneself!!! (Note: Duration of hike is actual WALKING time, not overall time. It's a two day hike...)
