Martin Dies, Jr., State Park and B. A. Steinhagen Lake is located near Jasper, TX. The trail is primarily used for birding and is accessible from March until May.
Absolutely loved this park. We had a great family day here. The trails were large and along the water and were absolutely beautiful. On a negative note this time of year the banana spiders are EVERYWHERE!! THEY ARE CREEPY! but besides dodging them every 20 seconds, overall I can't wait to go back!!!!
Took our kids and dog to camp and walked/hiked the trails. They're easy and wide, very scenic and pleasant. We also took a canoe out and paddled approximately a 3 mile loop around the island trail, just watch out for branches if you're sitting in the front and don't steer well. Really enjoyed ourselves!!
There are several trails to hike on both the Martin Dies side & the Walnut Ridge side. The longest one is the Island Trail at Walnut Ridge. This trail has two nice bridges to cross. Nice, clean trails.
