The Sam Houston National Forest and Lake Livingston State Park have miles and miles of trails for bikes and hiking.
Horseback riding is allowed anywhere in the National Forest. There are over 65,000 acres of National Forest in San Jacinto County , (please be respectful of private property as you ride).
Riding your motorcycle through East Texas is breath taking. Ride on over to New Adventure, pitch a tent, and tour the back roads.
12 miles from New Adventure is FS (Forest Service Road) 217, this takes you to the the 1,420-acre Big Creek Scenic Area. The Lone Star Hiking Trail offers four loops of various lengths for you to experience.
Grab your bike and ride the trails through the National Forest or hit the road (carefully) and ride the Texas Forest Trail!
Ready to ride the National Forest? Trailer your horse to FM 2666 (16.8 miles from New Adventure), and ride amoung the pines. GPS is highly recommended as you'll be riding in unmarked areas. We recommend using the FM 2666 Trailhead on Forest Service Road 217 A (Tarkington Trailhead). Group rates available for trail rides.
