“The longest loop extension in the Woodlands tract of Big Thicket National Preserve.”— Karl W
This is the longest loop option on the Woodlands Trail. To get to it you'll have to take the Woodlands Trail: 3.3-Mile Loop to the Woodlands Trail: 4.5-Mile Loop from which you can find this trail on the northernmost end. The name of the trail includes the distance you would have to travel to get to and from the parking area. If you think of the three trail sections as an upside-down-snowperson this section is the base/legs.
The eastern side of this trail travels closer to Big Sandy Creek than the two other trail sections, offering more opportunities to view it. You can take it in either direction as it both begins and ends off the Woodlands Trail: 4.5-Mile Loop.
