Sam Houston Jones State Park, Lake Charles

Directions: Take Hwy 171 north to intersection with LA 378. Take a left and follow the signs. Park entrance is off of a spur from Hwy 378.

Trail Information: Several trails in the park. Woody and can be very buggy (boy, can it be buggy-the biting kind) in the summer. Spring (it comes early) can be fantastic. Fairly flat but as it runs along a river there are many ups and downs due to the river bank. $2.00 fee for auto, free if AARP, $.50 if bike in.
