Overview

A longer loop option through the swamps and forest of Lake Houston State Park. To access this route, head to the Nature Center trailhead and parking near the NW corner of the Peach Creek Loop Trail.

Description

Start south onto the Peach Creek Loop Trail. The tread is mostly hardpack that follows the banks of Peach and Caney Creeks. The trail winds through a few small cypress swamps and also has several 30-50 yard long sandy sections.

After just under a half mile, continue onto the Ameri-Trail, which continues in the same way through a beautiful forest on the edge of an old swamp.

The Ameri-Trail will eventually bend to the left (east) until it links up with 5 Mile Rd.

5 Mile Road is closed to vehicles for this southern portion and provides access to Lake Isabel. It will head back north toward the Nature Center parking area and the start of the loop.

Overall, this is a lovely loop, and though it is fairly long, there is little to no elevation to worry about.
