Hike the W. Goodrich Jones State Forest: Middle Lake Trail

1.5 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Short forest trail featuring a serene lake. A simple hike good for families and people of all skill levels near Conroe, Texas. Also a great location for trail running!

Trail is a 3.5 mile loop. Trail is dog friendly and accessible year-round. The trail is also open to horses, and the outer trail is extra wide. The lake is relatively secluded, and a great place to have a snack or drink some water. Parking gets a bit hard to find later in the day, so come early!
