Huntsville State Park: Outer Loop Professional Review and Guide

"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 Outer Loop hike is long and has (for the Houston area) considerable elevation changes. Know your limits before starting on this hike and make sure you bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a first-aid kit."
