Comments: I went on this hike with five other people; it was nice but the trail needs a little maintenance done, lots of downed trees across the path and some bamboo growing in the middle of the trail. The last mile or two of the Pole Creek Trail was nothing but ash on both sides of the trail due to underbrush burning that had gone on very recently… in some areas downed trees where still on fire. Other than that it was a good hike and we only saw 5 – 6 other people on the trail.

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.
