Lake Livingston is an 84,800-acre reservoir on the Trinity River, popular for fishing and boating. The park has campgrounds, boat ramps, fishing areas, a horse stable, a swimming pool, and hiking trails. From the parking lot, walk to the left of the restrooms to pick up the trail. Or, if the trail is hard to make out due to fallen leaves and pine needles, walk to your right along the road and catch it between campsites 143 and 145, where it is more visible. This soft sand, pine-needle–covered trail meanders along the lakeshore through tall trees, passing through picnic areas and campgrounds with a jaunt into the woods at the other end. Nearly every step of the way is shaded by the towering loblolly pines.
