A very relaxing and easy trail with nice views when I went in the spring. Definitely enjoyable and not too many mosquitos when I went. Not as secluded as I usually like on my hikes, but still a good time nonetheless. I think it would be a better place to visit for camping or just sitting and taking in nature rather than visiting with a focus on the hike.

The park and trail is not closed as it says on this page, but you do need a reservation even to take a lousy hike.

We hiked portions of the Trinity Trace Trail and Baksa. Sections of these trails were closed. We also hiked the entire Pineywoods Boardwalk Trail. These trails are wide and easy for all levels.

Pretty piney woods. Flat, easy walk. Connected several trails inside Lake Livingston State Park. Relaxed and enjoyable. Dog friendly.

Nice loop trail if you connect the smaller trails. Lots of standing water holding tons of mosquitos but a little bit of Picaridin and they stayed away for the whole hike. Several large downed trees block the north end of the loop but there were alternate paths around them. Great hike with lots of shade.

Trails are easy and well marked. During rainy season they do hold water. There is a nice boardwalk area as well. Beautiful area!

Regular hiking trails were closed due to standing water from the extremely wet winter. There is a raised boardwalk trail through a portion of the park. The boardwalk passes a frog pond, a birding and butterfly area, and a duck pond. There was seating at each of these areas and lovely wildlife habitats throughout.

While the scenery is awesome, the trail was filled with mosquitos. And we are not just talking a normal amount. We were in the middle of a nat cloud type swarm of them that you could not escape. Mosquitos bites everywhere. No amount of spray controlled the. Lots of mud right now. Be prepared. 7 mile hike was easily completed.

Easy hike/walk. Trails were not clearly marked and this app did not show all the trails the park map did.

First off most reviews don't show the main trail at this park, the main trail is a straight trail that connects between the loop trail and the oak flat loop near the entrance. The trails easy to hike expect muddy shoes if it's rained recently and the mosquitos are very bad in summer time.

Trails are poorly marked and maintained, as are the campsites, but the views are spectacular.

Not as secluded as hoped for. Goes through a lot of loud campsites, but the views of the lake were pretty sweet.

There are a couple of nice short trails here which are mostly shaded among the pretty pine trees. The trail has a duck pond, butterfly garden and a nice boardwalk. There are also horse rides available at the stable.
