Huntsville State Park is a 2,083-acre recreational area that was opened in 1938 but later closed in 1940 for ten years after a flood caused the dam spillway to collapse. It was officially reopened to the public in 1956. The park adjoins the Sam Houston National Forest and encloses Lake Raven. White-tailed deer, raccoon, opossum, armadillo, migratory waterfowl, and fox squirrel are just some of the wildlife found in the area. Located near the western edge of the Southern Pine Belt, the park is dominated by loblolly pines and shortleaf pines. The Dogwood Trail to Prairie Branch Trail is a moderate hike with some elevation changes. It is not long but can be a challenge for hikers who have limited physical abilities.
