“This is a short trail to a giant statue of Sam Houston.”— Karl W
The trail is very short and easy. You can find it from the southern end of a parking lot at the visitor center. Continue past the visitor center through the tall pines along a wide gravel-fill pathway. There are a few benches along the path. The final part of the trail circles the statue and is made of paving stones. You'll be able to hear I-45 the whole time, and see cars zipping by for most of the path.
