The roads have also been labeled. The Trail Between The Lakes is shown in blue. The good news Trail between the lakes that since the Forest Service does not recommend drinking the water even if filteredthere are ample opportunities to cache water.
We dropped one car at Lakeview and dropped water on the way back to Hwy 96. It was said that a rider could gallop his horse through the open forest.
The one to the right is of the whole trail and is large format. Mile markers begin at Lakeview and count up from east to west. Welcome to the Piney Woods of East Texas.
Our trip was from west to east, starting from the Hwy 96 trail head. Luckily, I had sketched the trail on the topos and have since found a Forest Service track to fill in some gaps. If you are unfamiliar with this part of Texas, you will be pleasantly surprised with the mild weather that is typical of winter IMO the best time to hike in East Texas. We hiked this trail in January 2004, just about a year after the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated over East Texas.
What it cost in shuttle time, we made up by not having to pump or look for "good" water. All the maps are true 1:24,000 scale based on the USGS 7. While there are some areas where the historical ecology is coming back, most of the pines are now shortleaf or Trail between the lakes found in plantations and the understory is filled with bushes. Look for the sign for the trailhead. It should also be noted that the summer can be VERY hot and humid and quite uncomfortable if you aren't used to it.
While very serviceable, and better than anything else available, this is not my best work. Direction: From Lufkin TX take Highway 103 east for 40 miles. If you get to FM 201, you went about 0. This is home of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker and eight other woodpecker species. To Buy Map: This map is FREE.
Since this trip was before I started OuachitaMaps, I don't have any pictures from the trip. All in all this is similar to the Lone Star and Four C hiking trails.
While there are some areas where the historical ecology is coming back, most of the pines are now shortleaf or loblolly found in plantations and the understory is filled with bushes.
