Lake Houston Loop

Overview

The trailhead for this route is located at the SW corner of Peach Creek Loop Trail. The tread is mostly hardpack that follows the banks of Peach and Caney Creeks. The trail winds through a few small cypress swamps and also has several 30-50 yard long sandy sections.

This is mostly used as an out-and-back trail, though when the trail is dry, you can use the 5-Mile Road past Isabel Lake to return back to the front of the park.
