Very picturesque and quiet trail. The smell of pine trees is worth the visit alone. There are more trails here than on this app and the State Park App. They have added more.

I love visiting this small, peaceful state park located along the northern end of the Davy Crockett National Forest. I've enjoyed hiking here in the spring and summer. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. On my hike today it was still lovely despite a recent controlled burn. The dogwoods were blooming and there were lots of birds, butterflies and dragonflies. There are interesting historical features as well making it a great place to hike. I also appreciate that the bathrooms are always very clean.

Such a wonderful little hidden gem. Drive three hours to visit here. As there isn't much where we are from.
Very clean facilities and the geo caching was a great surprise.
Very professional and courteous park ranger. A great park!

A great mix of varying elevations, flat & wide trails, history, and beautiful scenery. Throw in some really clean restrooms, running water, and friendly, knowledgeable Forest Rangers and you can't go wrong with this one. Great trail and we'll be back.

Real nice and clean trails! And camping sites were several campsites that were equipped with water and electricity. Will be back soon!

Mission Tejas has a collection of many interconnecting trails totaling over 10 miles. They are all well marked and maintained. The trails are mostly easy but there are a few trails that have some elevation changes.

I really enjoyed the trails I hiked and hope to someday come back and hike the portions I missed.

This is an awesome short trail and camp ground. Big beautiful timber and some steep hills to climb make this trail awesome. The mission was built in the 1600's.
