Early December hike. Had just rained, trail slightly muddy, but well drained overall. Some nice pine trees, relatively flat trail crosses paved road a few times. I'd expect to have wet feet during the rainy season, trail crosses two streams which were very low and jump-able this time of year. Take precautions against ticks. Saw several ticks on my treated outer clothing, pulled close to a dozen off of my dog.
Overall a decent hike. Some nice, quiet sections.
Beautiful trail that is well maintained and well marked. The undergrowth was high on some areas that blocked the view, but still beautiful. There are several creeks that run through the area that my dog used for water but they were stagnant. I am sure during a wetter season you could resupply your water. I spent the night listening to the wind rush through the young pines.
Little Lake Creek Trail is inundated (completely) in several areas where the trail it is nearest Lake Paula (broadly between 30.503331°, -95.663924° and 30.488726, -95.661501). Water is only 6-12" deep, but expect to get soaked and extremely muddy. I hit the worst section right in the middle of a 13 mile loop hike (starting/ending at TH3), which made the last half of the hike a bit more interesting. Hope it dries out soon, but I'm not holding my breath.
