Enjoy the pecan forest with us!

June 19th - 25th is Pollinator Awareness Week (designated by the US Department of Agriculture), and so our hike in the pecan and hardwood forest will focus especially on pollinators! You might be surprised what types of animals are pollinators... Hint: Bees are important, but they're not the only ones!

On this hike, we'll walk past beautiful Buck Lake, named for the family who donated the land for the state park, and the lesser-known Green Lake as well. We'll keep an eye out for pollinators and all kinds of wildlife and nature!

Meet: at the Acorn Bird Blind (down the path from the restrooms, between campsites 39 and 41). Parking is available at the Overflow parking lot in front of the Walk-in campground lot.

Difficulty and length: This easy trail is approximately 1.25 miles. There is one steep but short hill, and the rest of the dirt path is fairly level.

Who: Your whole family! All ages are welcome. Friendly dogs on leash are welcome.

Bring: Good walking shoes, sun protection, and drinking water are recommended. Strollers are welcome, but might have to be unloaded for the one small hill on our hike.
