After parking, hike across FM 149 to the hiker trail sign. Watch for traffic, since this is a busy highway. Go into the trees to get on the narrow dirt trail. The trail markers are orange and are about six feet high in the trees. If during any hike on the Lone Star Trail you have not seen a marker in a few minutes, stop and get your bearings. Look ahead and to both sides and you should be able to see a marker in the distance. The trail heads downhill and curves left, past a creek on your left. Parts of this trail can be steep and may require some climbing in and out of creek beds, so make sure you wear proper footwear.
