Unlike many of the country’s western mountain states, Texas offers little in the way of federal public lands. Sabine National Forest is one of only four national forests in the state. Its 160,000-plus acre count is cumulative, not contiguous; it is a patchwork of forest service land interspersed with private tracts. However, this should not deter hikers from enjoying the trail offerings, particularly in light of the fact that national forest trails in Texas are possibly the most underutilized trails in the state. It is always a good idea to select trails in the state’s federal lands that have been adopted by independent outdoors groups, because their enthusiasm for maintaining trails makes up for the neglect of trail maintenance by the USDA Forest Service.
