Rustling Leaves Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This forest of pine, red oak, maple, walnut, sassafras, and dogwood surrounding a spring-fed, 80-acre lake feels more like something out of the far north woodlands than Texas—a bit of the “Yooper” (Upper Peninsula) for those homesick Great Lakes hikers. But you don’t have to travel all the way to the Upper Peninsula to enjoy a little hike in the woods.
Daingerfield State Park, deeded to the state by private owners in 1935, enjoys the benefits of both North Woods atmosphere and Southern climate. It also took advantage of the Civilian Conservation Corps’ labor. Several of the buildings on the park were constructed from the local stone and timber, and the entire 500- plus acre park has a timeless beauty that many CCC-constructed parks in Texas embody."
