The ground is almost soft dirt. Some part of the trail is very narrow and the plant is covering the trail a bit. We need to cross small creeks a few times but the water level is low so that it is not a problem in this season. Also, there are a few steep slopes at the north trail.

Overall good. Some muddy patches after this weeks rain/ snow. Creeks had a moderate flow but was able to cross without getting boots too wet.

Very narrow trail that’s completely shaded. There’s a part of the loop where you have to get on a service road, and it’s easy to miss the trailhead. We ended up inadvertently adding 3 miles because of that. It’s nice to get out in the woods, and it’s not too far from Houston.

Wonderful wilderness trail run! Just what I was looking for. Challenging and very secluded.

Great trail with lots of shade. The trail is well marked and not a lot of traffic on the trail. I can see it being a bit tricky if there has been recent rainfall but it was dry for most of the creek crossings.

HikingGreat!

Great trail for a nice walk under the canopy of the many and varied trees of the Sam Houston National Forest. Perfect distance from Houston, took us an hour to get there. We didn't see any wildlife, but lots of signs that they are around. There is a small convenient parking lot immediately across the road from the trailhead. We seen very few people (8 total) one group of 4 and two other couples. The trail is in good shape and marked fairly well. If you have children or smaller dogs, there are several tree across the path, which you may need to assist them to cross over the obstacle. The use of the All Trails App made it a safe and efficient hike, we were able to complete in just over 2 hours.

really pretty trail! not too overgrown except for some fallen trees that if you have a small pup like me, you might have to pick him up over them. got a little confusing on the trail markers, but just made a bit of an extra loop to get back on track!

HikingBlowdownOver grown

Great Trail that tunnels through dense forest with many towering pines and hardwood trees. Liked the boardwalk over the marshy portions of Little Lake Creek at the southern end of the loop. Only detractor was that the north/south connector along the eastern wilderness boundary is a forest service road rather than trail. There is no traffic on the road and the surrounding woods are nice, but just not the same as walking on a footpath. Trail is somewhat overgrown in that yaupon and beautyberry will be brushing your arms much of the way, but the route is easy to follow with signs at junctions and tree blazes. A fair number of downed trees, but most you can simply step over without losing stride.

Went the entire loop.. the way there is marked great the way back not so much so just make sure you are checking your map! Would advise on bug spray. Great hike lots of shade... didn’t even feel like late August in Texas Its a great day hike compared to the ones in the area. So far, my favorite it Sam Houston State Park. Not crowded at all

Great hike, missed turning onto the large road in the middle and hike about a mile extra. We brought bug spray so the mosquitos werent so bad. The trail was was a little overgrown in parts but staff was out there cutting back parts of it today.

Mosquitos are thriving now, had to put multiple layers of insect repellent. With that and as long as we were moving they typically left us alone. Saw 1 baby water moccasin in one of the creeks so please be careful if you take kids. Saw 1 giant rat snack hiding about a foot from the trail. It’s a little over grown and shaded but makes it feel more adventuresome. However, that also means there is absolutely no breeze and it is very hot. At one point the trail turns on an old dirt road so make sure you turn at that spot or it will add another mile or two to your hike.

Overgrown (to the point of nature reclaiming parts of the trail). Be aware of the snakes. We found multiple water moccasins.

We took the wrong path but it’s a nice hike in the forest. Would recommend and do again. No bugs at this time of year!
