Lake Wister State Park Trail System
Lake Wister State Park Trail System offers a variety of multi-purpose trails that can be enjoyed by everyone. The Lone Star Interpretive Trail, located in Wards Campground, is three quarters of a mile long and is intended for beginning to intermediate hikers. Visitors to this self-guided interpretive nature trail will be treated to a winding trail that runs through the forest to a rocky ridge that runs along the park. Also located in the Wards Campground is an ADA compliant trail. Guests in wheelchairs can enjoy a beautiful scenic tour of the park on this 1/3 mile long paved trail.
Hiking and mountain biking are available on the popular Lighthorseman Trail, a 6.2 mile trail that offers something for visitors of all skill levels. Travel along the shore of Lake Wister while enjoying beautiful views of the lake along the way. The trail has minor elevation change and may have some brushy areas during certain months in the year. The Lone Star Interpretive Trail is located at the end of the Lighthorseman Trail, so guests can use it to loop around and return on the same path back to the trail entrance.
