Miles Hiked: 13.21 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: I have made this 13.21 mile loop hike twice in the past month, parking in Lot 4 (I believe) and heading East on the Lone Star HT. The area between FM 149 and Osborn Road had recently had its under brush burned as had the areas around the North Wilderness trailhead along the Pole Creek Trail. A lot of the downed trees that crossed the trail had been cleared since my hike about a month ago and one of the two other people we saw was a park worker clearing the trail about half way between the LLCL trailhead and the Pole Creek trail junction (the one other person we saw was a jogger). The brush is still very thick in this area and some sections still take a little guess work to find the trail again after a sharp turn or fork but all in all it is still an enjoyable trail to just get away for a few hours.

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.
