Combine portions of three trails into a 3-mile hike to see the best of Bastrop State Park. Start in the loblolly pines, towering 60 feet overhead. These are part of “Lost Pines,” the westernmost stand in Texas. In the spring, mating calls from the Houston toad, an endangered species, can be heard. The park was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1997, based on work done in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
