Beech Woods Professional Review and Guide
"An easy day hike through mature beech-magnolia-loblolly forest. Special Attractions: Mature Big Thicket forest. Permit required for camping. Part of this hike wanders through a mature beech-magnolia-loblolly forest. The beech forest is one of several plant communities found in the lush Big Thicket of East Texas. Slight differences in slope, creek proximity, and soil createseveral different biological communities. The thicket forms a sort of crossroads between east and west. Prickly pears grow within a hundred yards of bald cypresses; roadrunners nest by eastern bluebirds. The trail follows an old dirt road about .3 mile to the marked Beech Woods loop on the right."
