The trail, under the care of the U.S. Forest Service, is actually maintained by volunteers from the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club, Inc., who do an enthusiastic job. Trail mileage is marked by 4x4 ground posts with mileage on top and by redand- white metal plates nailed to trees. The trail periodically crosses gravel Forest Service roads and farm-to-market roads, offering hikers a number of opportunities to hike shorter segments or replenish food and water supplies. While creeks, rivers, and reservoirs are part of the trail landscape, it is important that hikers carry and cache enough water for their needs.
