The Lone Star Hiking Trail runs 128 miles through the Sam Houston National Forest, from Lake Conroe to near Cleveland. The 27-mile section from the trailhead on Farm to Market Road 945 to the terminus near Winters Bayou Scenic Area on Farm to Market Road 1725 is a designated National Recreation Trail. Five access points allow you to choose a shorter route or to break the hike into two days. The natural trail is generally only a narrow path through the forest, mostly sandy, with some grassy stretches. In many places, thick roots make careful footing necessary, especially when leaves and pine needles have covered the trail. Hikers can spot white-tailed deer, turkey, quail, and dove. Rabbits, foxes, and bobcats also live in the pineywoods. Other residents include mosquitoes, ticks, and chiggers, so insect repellent is recommended, especially in the summer.
