The Mercy Fire Tower Loop starts in thick woodlands, goes through a riparian landscape, and finishes along an old logging road. To start the hike, head toward the hiker trail sign, going past an information sign and into the woods. Go through the motorized-vehicle barriers and get on a dirt trail. The trail markers are silver and are located about 6 feet high in the trees. If during any hike on the Lone Star Trail you have not seen a marker in a few minutes, stop and get your bearings.

If traveling this trail, on the east side of FM 2025, it is an out-and-back - not a loop. Also, trail was not 7 miles as listed, it was only 2 miles. Trail also contained several branches that came to a dead-end.
