For a chance to see many of the typical birds of the eastern Texas Piney Woods/Big Thicket region, you could hardly do better than to take a short (or longer) hike along the trails at this beautiful spot located just a few minutes off U.S. Highway 59. A specially designated area within the Sam Houston National Forest, Big Creek encompasses 1,460 acres of meandering creeks, lush pine-hardwood forest, and varied flora and fauna.
