Mile 86 – Trailhead #15 (the end)
March 24, 2019
Lone Star Hiking Trail Day 8. Today is the day, the day we finish our thru-hike of the Lone Star Hiking Trail.
I learned today that my phone is almost out of storage which caused
I decided to load my pack today a different way and found it MUCH more comfortable and had no issue with my shoulder like I did yesterday. I will go more in detail about that in another blog post/video.
We didn’t meet up with Jerry any today and instead chose to wait to see him at the finish line.
The trail was mostly dry until we got into the Winters Bayou section around mile 92 and lots of obstacles.
We crossed over the San Jacinto River (thankfully a footbridge was provided) and it made for a beautiful view.
Shortly before mile 94, we ran into some concrete pillars, not sure what they were once, maybe an old fire tower? Maybe someone will know and can comment below.
I also found that the trail cuts through several pond areas with lily pads. It made for a beautiful site and really messed up the good pace I had going as I felt the need to stop and take a million pictures.
We passed more concrete pillars after mile 95, which left me even more confused about what they may have once
The last mile of trail left us with a lot of mud. The boardwalk going across one large section of mud was destroyed which meant a long mud walk =)
