The Forest Trail, which does not feature much elevation change, is difficult due to its length. It starts at the parking lot and heads east toward the San Jacinto River before turning around and looping back. Lake Houston Park, which encompasses 4,919 acres, is located in New Caney, just north of Houston. The land was purchased from Champion Paper Company in 1981 by the State of Texas and opened for day use in 1992. Now part of the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Lake Houston Park continues to offer facilities for campers, hikers, bikers, and picnickers.
