Need to Know
Day pass required- $5/person daily.
This trail runs along the perimeter of the state park. The trailhead is located near park headquarters and exits at the back of the park near the campsites (5.25 miles). It begins out relatively flat and then the elevation changes begin, some pretty steep (most of the steep climbing is on the front half of the trail). It is wide enough for a side-by-side to drive through (i.e., park employees).
There are two points on the trail where it becomes part of the park road due to the perimeter fence. Following the park trail map is advised for finding reentry points as they are not clearly marked.
Two creek crossings can be found. The first is near the middle of the trail and has a steep incline. The second creek crossing is near the end of the trail. Both creeks are usually at least a foot wide and a couple inches deep depending on recent rainfall.
Most of the trail is East Texas dirt covered with some pine needles and tall grass. Trail is well-kept. Good trail to get out in nature and enjoy the solitude. Not much traffic.
