Kirby Nature Trail is a 3.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Kountze, Texas that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
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.
Love this place it's so peaceful and beautiful well taken care of always friendly smiles when I see people
Very nice. It was a great experience hiking with my girlfriends family. We will defiantly go back.
It was a long loop for a beginner, but it's not a hard trail to walk. There were benches along the path and beautiful places by the creek and slough where you could sit, rest, and snack.
Beautiful, engaging trail. Very maintained and marked with informative signs about the various tree types. The cypress trees are gorgeous. A very wide and well-traveled path better suited for those looking for a family stroll rather than a strenuous hike.
Really nice, well marked trail. The mosquitos about ate us alive though! Would like to do it again in cooler weather. The bamboo gives this trail a kind of creepy feeling. Really liked it.
This is another easy trail to follow, nothing strenuous but very relaxing. There are several old bridges to enjoy and take pictures. This is good for families with kids or a quick get way for you to relax.
Beautiful, easy trail. Much of it wide and clear. Much of the Kirby Trail was closed off so we took points 22 to 15 to reach the Turkey Creek Trail to the Sandhill Loop. Still got a good distance in - we figured near 5 miles altogether.
With bridges, a picnic table, plenty of clear, pretty spots to rest and enjoy the view - this could be our favorite of the Big Thicket. We'll see!
Great interpretive trail, beautiful board walks, nice area
It was a great hike for the kids who are 8 & 3 and did great. Bugs got thick and had to turn back but still had a great time.
Great trail for kids, had some awesome huge cypress trees and cypress knees, very nice creek, lot of bridge-ways, descriptions of various trees, picnic area at farthest point of the loop. Chemical out houses and water fountain at start of hike.
