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.

Mosquitos and deer flies and a lot of mud. Be careful not to go anywhere from 2 weeks after a rain.

Wear bug spray as there are an insane amount of mosquitos. Unfortunately bug spray won't do a great job of keeping the deer flies away from your ankles and calves. Expect plenty of deer fly bites.

if you just want a nice walk it's great but nothing to see.

Wonderful short hike .... lots of flowering pitcher plants.

Great hike, especially starting early in the day.

This is a great trail for small walks. It is named after the sundews which are small carnivorous plants. This trail also has quite a few pitcher plants which are also carnivorous.

It's one of my favorite hiking days and the first good long hike! Odd that I hadn't saved it here.
We parked one vehicle at Kirby TH and hiked from the Turkey Creek TH. We did walk up on some wild hogs this day!
