Hit the Trail
Are you looking for a scenic place to ride your horse? You can ride in many of Texas′ state parks!
Sixteen of those parks also have equestrian facilities such as designated campsites and stalls. One park even has an arena (Hill Country State Natural Area)!
Hike Pick: Ray Roberts Lake State Park - Isle Du Bois Unit
Lost Pines Trail
As I start down the Lost Pines Trail at Ray Roberts Lake State Park, towering pines and chatty squirrels greet me.
The easy 0.5-mile loop takes me past a piece of history. An old sandstone chimney is a remnant of pioneer life in the 1800s, and I can't help but wonder what life would have been like at that time.
Eventually a small spur on the trail brings me to a gorgeous sunset above Ray Roberts Lake. I stop and take in the view. This short, but sweet hike was worth every step.
