Steps on a trail climbing up a hill under tall treesAt the northern end of the Davy Crockett National Forest in the hills of the East Texas Pineywoods, you’ll find Mission Tejas State Park. The park features rustic beauty and tranquility among tall trees.

With pine savannas, upland forest and hardwood bottomlands, this is an untouched window into the natural scenery of Texas’ past.
