Sam Houston National Forest: Winters Bayou Hike Professional Review and Guide
"The Winters Bayou Hike is a long but beautiful hike. It ends at Rivers Creek 4.3 miles from the trailhead at a nice spot for a picnic. After heavy rains this creek can be flowing swiftly, so be cautious. The Sam Houston National Forest is one of four national forests in Texas. It contains more than 163,000 acres and is located between Huntsville, Conroe, Cleveland, and Richards.
The district ranger’s office is located on FM 1375, 3 miles west of New Waverly. Archeological evidence that dates back 7,000 years has been found in a number of sites in the national forest. Any artifacts found must not be disturbed, as they are protected by federal and state regulations. Hiking, fishing, and hunting are allowed in most of the national forest."
