Great trail!

Great trail, way , way to many mosquitos!

Very clean, nice trail.

It’s a great first time campers park. Also if you need to have a trail that little ones can handle this is your spot. We use this park for scout camping some times.

Great trail!

Can't make a complete loop due to a lot of washed out trails, especially after a hard rain. Mosquitos in abundance, so take plenty of spray which didn't really help. Have multiple bites after 2.8 miles. It is an easy trail with lots of side turns. Easy to turn into a 3-4 mile hike, especially if you add the walk around the lake to your hike.

I decided to go yesterday, what a good idea!! It was kind of cold, I was wearing my jacket, but it was such an awesome day. The employees were super nice and everything was perfect.

Love this park. It is small, but well-maintained and has free camping (tent and RV spots-with reservations). Two different play grounds and plenty of picnic spots.

Northeast end of the trail is washed out. Had to backtrack. There were a lot of horseflies, so insect repellent would be good. Other than that it was a nice trail, and beautiful weather.

The trails weren't bad, but the mosquitos were absolutely terrible!

Great spot for a short hike with the family. Fantastic visitors center, well-kept trails and boardwalks, and plenty of benches to sit on and enjoy the surroundings.
Only thing that would make it better would be dog-friendly, though I understand the reasons they are not allowed.

The live oak trail was beautiful! Stroller friendly trail (ours was a jogger) may be a little bumpy for a stroller with no shocks.

Beautiful park!

Kids and I enjoyed it . Very peaceful . Lots of mosquitoes though !

Any place that does not allow dogs is a BIG 0 in my book!

"No Pets Allowed"

I've been hiking these trails for 5 years now almost daily and have loved them up until recently. The park itself has become more popular by people who evidently don't care. There is trash throughout the trails and obnoxious people who know nothing about trailing or hiking etiquette.

Excellent Trail.

Some of the areas on these trails are great. It does have a lot of low lying areas that were not accessible due to the water. I think it would be amazing trails if everything were open. Most of the trails are wide which helps since this is shared between biking and hiking. We saw deer and rabbits which made the hike enjoyable.

This was a nice trail for beginners- basically no incline or decline, the only thing I didn't care for on this trail was the bugs (load up on bug spray or stop by the nature center, they have some outside for public use) and the fact that on the trails it was a lot of brush and it was very closed in on the trails we took. For the latter reason I wouldn't run on this trail- we ran into a lot of webs we didn't see just walking, I can't imagine how many you'd miss and run into at a faster speed! The workers there were very nice though, and we plan to go back on a Tuesday to watch the black smithing demo in the morning. Make sure that if you go you try the "Live Oak Trail," they are very beautiful!

Also note- dogs as well as other animals are no longer allowed on the trails leash or no leash.

Generally, this is a great trail. Unfortunately, the mosquitos seem to think so too. Avoid especially after the rain unless you fancy being swarmed by a pack of hungry bugs.

Horrible

Flat, piney woods. Would be good for running if you just need a break from concrete, but it's short. There are restrooms and picnic tables available. It's interesting to see the trees sway in the wind.

Was very surprised that this beautiful park was so close, it's a hidden gem! Everyone at the Nature Center was so nice. I definitely recommend it!

I drove 45 minutes just to get kicked out because they do not allow dogs anymore! Boo!

Went with my mom to hike here while visiting the Houston area. The trail was a simple hike and very beautiful. The volunteers were very knowledgable and the story of how Kleb Woods came to be is very interesting. Be sure and stop by. On your was out to Kleb on your left, don't miss the beautiful temple and grounds. And check out my pics to see how beautiful it truly is.

I love this trail. I've been running it for awhile now (three summer now) when I first started coming here I wasn't aware there was different trails other than the paved track.

If you drive all the way to the pack of the park in the last parking lot and walk towards the lake to the left is a bench and behind it is an opening to a dirt trail head.

Previous summer, with the drought, there were more open trails, but with the current rain fall it is a little difficult because some are low lying ground with large puddles that are too deep to run through (trust me, I was shin deep before I learned my lesson)

Once you head down this trail head you will come to many branches of different trails in the woods. I like to go straight and pass both sandy left hand turns and go straight and the next left take that. All trails intersect and you can pick your own way through. I've ran the entire parameter and it was 8.4 miles from dirt trails to pavement and bak to start.
