Middle Lake, Deep Gully and Gravel Pit trails. The trails are very well maintained and well marked. These are very easy, flat trails. We saw a red cockaded woodpecker, an endangered bird species that has a colony in the W.G. Jones State Forest. Parking off FM 1488 is convenient to the trailhead. There are no services, no water and no restrooms at the parking area. There is a ranger station on FM 1488 east of the parking area. The drawback is that because there are no garbage or waste receptacles at the parking area, there are numerous plastic bags of dog poop left trailside or in the parking area.
