"The 551-acre state park, with the 88-acre Lake Daingerfield, was established in the early 1930s as a Civilian Conservation Corps project. The park landscape is noted for its blooming dogwoods in spring and its quiet, serene beauty. A 2.5-mile hiking trail circles the lake.

Key birds: Wood Duck, Wild Turkey, Red-headed and Pileated Woodpeckers, White-breasted and Brown-headed Nuthatches, Pine Warbler, and Bachman’s Sparrow are present year-round. Anhinga; Chuck-will’s-widow; Scissor-tailed Flycatcher; Wood Thrush; Yellowthroated, Prothonotary, Kentucky, and Hooded Warblers; Louisiana Waterthrush; Indigo and Painted Buntings; and Dickcissel occur in summer. American White Pelican; Osprey; Bald Eagle; LeConte’s, Fox, and Harris’s Sparrows; Rusty Blackbird; and Purple and House Finches can usually be found in winter. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information."

A good hike for kids, as there is a lake and boats to hold their attention, but not so remote as you have to worry about their safety. A bit too crowded for my tastes, but an enjoyable afternoon ramble.

A very easy and enjoyable hike that is great for the entire family. This was a well maintained trail that traversed through the woods and along the lake. If you hike it in the fall you will experince the beautiful fall foliage that Daingerfield State Park offers.
