Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Leaving the historic town of Bastrop on TX 21, Bastrop State Park has a rugged side and a history worthy of a Texas legend. Over the last century, this park has seen the apparent destruction of nature’s beauty by clear-cutting and then wildfires, which blackened the sky with smoke and flames. These raging fires also threatened the dining hall, swimming area, and historic cabins completed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s.

Bastrop State Park is a changed but still family-friendly destination with a surprisingly rugged side. The fires changed the landscape, and flooding in 2015 led to dam failure and more damage. Some areas of the park are closed due to the flood and fire damage and/or projects to repair them, and because of the dam failure, the park’s 10-acre lake is gone. But there is still much to enjoy. Trails inside the Park Road 1A loop are open. As of publication date, the primitive camping and group youth areas are closed indefinitely"
