A Convergence of Ecosystems Life of all types abounds in the Big Thicket. This national preserve protects the incredible diversity of life found where multiple habitats converge in southeast Texas. Hiking trails and waterways meander through nine different ecosystems, from longleaf pine forests to cypress-lined bayous. It is a place of discovery, a place to wander and explore, a place to marvel at the richness of nature.

Been on these trails twice now...they were control burning one area so couldn't get to the trail I really wanted to that I haven't been on yet when my wife and I took my mother-in-law there today. All the trials here are well maintained and pretty easy. You may have to cross water on quite a few of these so be prepared for that. Nice little park that has a little bit of everything.

This is a gem in the forest. Very well marked, with maps at the trailhead. The cypress trees are impressive, especially when you reach the cypress grove. We saw only one other group. Restrooms at the trailhead are very clean.

We hiked this today, and it was beautiful! We didn't see anyone else on the trail. There are downed trees just past Bench C. It's hard to see past them, but step over them and you'll be back on the trail. At Bench F, the map portion of the bench is missing. There is a bridge to the right of Bench F (if you're sitting on the bench), and that is the way you want to go to continue on the trail.

This trail is beautiful absolutely love. It's enclosed in the woods trees, squirrels, and all kinds of little critter. I'd recommend camping out if you can there's plenty of exploring to be had.
