This hike takes you east toward Lake Conroe and then heads north toward the Stubblefield Recreation Area. The Sam Houston National Forest is one of four national forests in Texas.

I've done this hike many time, but I can still remember the first time when, about 3/4 of a mile in, the trail heads straight toward Lake Conroe and the spectacular view of this undisturbed end of the lake took me by surprise and took my breath away. Gorgeous 😍😊
