Comments: Beautiful, well marked trail. We parked at the overlook and hiked to Pond Camp. Hunters trashed out the area, so we made our own camp not far away. We didn't see anyone else all day Saturday and only one other group of hikers on Sunday. The trail was covered in leaves and views were as good as it gets for the piney woods of East Texas. Ticks are still a problem and one must check often to ensure they don't become a problem.

One of the hidden jewels of Texas, the Lone Star Hiking Trail is the only long-distance National Recreation Trail in the state. At 128 miles (including loop trails), it is also the state's longest continuously marked and maintained footpath. Located in the famed Big Thicket area in east Texas, the trail is well-suited for both short and long hikes (of up to 10 days), appealing to dayhikers, overnight backpackers and long-distance hikers. The LSHT lies between the major metro centers of Houston-Galveston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio--home to more than 8 million people just a 2-hour drive from the trail. The author, a Texas native, is an experienced long-distance hiker who has thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and many other nationally recognized long-distance trails throughout the U.S. This is the first guidebook to the trail and is officially endorsed and promoted by the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club.
