A trail system along the banks of Sam Rayburn Lake that opened in 2017.

John Alan

Overview

There is private lands to the south and east of the trail, as you get past the ravine sections and more onto the flat. Respect the locals and be courteous. The trail is on lands leased to Angelina County by ACOE.
Family Friendly: An easy trail system with nice views along lakeside.

Description

From mix-master, the Yellow Loop circles the Gilliland Cemetary, intersecting at two points to the second in a series of four of the stacked loops. The upper section of the Blue Loop is relatively flat and the ravine sections flow through some sweet rollers, paralleling the ravines.

Up next is the Orange Loop. This small third loop intersects twice with the Blue Loop and once with the Green Loop. The Green Loop takes you to the opposite side of the main inlet ravine and onto some picturesque sections along the lakeside, before turning back into some densely wooded flat section with good, fast flow. From there you can head back through the upper or lower sections of the Orange, Blue & Yellow loops to the parking area or repeat your favorite loops.

Along the way there are several bailout points, including the Gilliland Cemetery road and the old state highway at the furthermost point south. The four-way crossing get's you to a flatter section, weaving through Yopon thickets under tall pines. An earlier portion of the trail borders a Red-Cockated Woodpecker recruitment area.
