  • We really enjoyed this hike. We were a little early in the year, so we didn't get to see all the colors, but it was a beautiful day regardless. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as the steep parts...  read more »
  • One big long day trail through the Texas hill country. I really like the unique maples intertwined with the hill country foilage. The manzanillas really added color to the landscape. Courteous staff, pleasent facilities. Quiet.
  • This is a very nice park. The hiking trails are fun and not too strenuous, I just wish there were more of them. Beautiful area for camping.
  • Most likely one of the most beautiful hikes I took in the past few years. We visited right after the heavy rains, there was water everywhere, great way to spend a day hiking the area. Clean and very well maintained as most parks we have visited in TX this year.
  • Must see places if you love nature and if you are nature deprived because of living in a city like Houston. Its not comparable to many of the famous national parks but it's within couple hours of driving from Houston and offers couple good decent and kids friendly day hikes. Definitely recommend it as a weekend destination in nature and a bit away from the hustle and bustle.
  • We've been going to Lost Maples since my son was little. Now we take the grandkids. Beautiful water and area. Great swimming. Going this year too.
