The Oak Flats trail is a short loop located immediately adjacent to the Lake Livingston State Park entrance station. The loop traverses a mature forest of loblolly/shortleaf pine with an understory of blackjack/sandjack oak. Several information plaques discuss some of the history of the area including lumber industry history, Trinity River steamboat history, and some of the history of the Alabama and Coushatta tribes in the area.

Great, short hike perfect for someone with a young child. We went for the First Day Hike event, so there was a book to read along the trail. Lots of tall trees and logs. A nice, easy, pleasant walk.

HikingGreat!

Short but lovely hike that starts right next to the entrance station to the park. Some large, impressive pines and several plaques with some interesting history of the area. Saw several pileated woodpeckers and kids liked the numerous banana spiders, nearly 3 inches across from legtip to legtip.
