Take a Hike on a Long Texas Trail

One of the hidden jewels of Texas, the Lone Star Hiking Trail (LSHT) is the only long-distance National Recreation Trail in the state. At 128 miles—including loop trails—it is the state’s longest continuously marked and maintained footpath. Located in East Texas’s famed Big Thicket area, the trail winds through the thick woodlands of Sam Houston National Forest, an ecologically diverse region within a few hours’ drive of Houston-Galveston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio.

Let Texas native and experienced long-distance hiker Karen Borski Somers guide you along this incomparable footpath, well-suited for both short and long hikes of up to 10 days, appealing to day hikers, overnight backpackers, and thru-hikers. The author conveniently divides the trail into 10 sections, complete with an overview, section map, GPS waypoints, trail description, mileage chart, and more. It’s everything you need from the guidebook that’s officially endorsed and promoted by the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club.
