Park. so shortly after you see the firehouse on your left, look to the right for the turn off for the LONE STAR PARK. there are several trails in the park and they are all wonderful and well kept. the scenery is beautiful no matter which trail you choice. we parked our trailers in a nice big gravel parking lot near one of the lakes. we kept going straight for a bit and it was on the left. we brought 4 of our horses and it was a wonderful time!

this trail was ALOT of fun, nice easy going, beautiful scenery!! at first the address that Google gives you is wrong. it takes you to a wastewater treatment plant. head back out to the road with the fire house on your left. turn left so the firehouse is still on your left. start looking to the right. there will be SMALL red sign telling you to turn to the right for the LONE STAR

In response to Megan: no, the trail has not 'vanished' - the entrance just got relocated: it's not north of Kings Hwy anymore but south. - there's a big sign where Crittenden Rd leads into Kings Hwy.

Parking is not so easy anymore ... :-(

We just tried to find this trail today, and the address given by Suffolk Parks & Rec is now a wastewater plant (102 Bob House Pkwy) with construction site parking in front of it, and no trail access or parking. Guess this trail is gone? No park that we could find. Very disappointing.

Another nice hike in Lone Star Lakes. I agree that there is more variety on this hike than the other two here.

This is a very easy 3 mile trail. Lots to see. Areas like "Lunker Landing" and "Blue Gill Hills" make me think it is more for fishermen than hikers but it is a joint use park.
