What national forests are in Texas?
My family just moved to Texas, and my partner and I have a few weeks before we have to start work. We’d love to explore some of the national forests—which ones are there?
Answer provided by
There are endless national parks and historical sites in Texas, along with the four national forests—Angelina, Davy Crockett, Sabine, and Sam Houston.
- Angelina National Forest
- Davy Crockett National Forest
- Sabine National Forest
- Sam Houston National Forest
You’ll find Sabine National Forest in the piney woods of East Texas. Iit’s the eastern-most of the four National Forests in Texas, forming part of the boundary between Texas and Louisiana.
Angelina National Forest is in the upper Gulf Coastal province, where you’ll come across miles of gently rolling terrain. It lies in the Neches River Basin and on the north and south shores of Sam Rayburn Reservoir.
If you travel about 50 miles north of Houston, you’ll find Sam Houston National Forest. A portion of the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail winds through this national forest.
Lastly, the Davy Crockett National Forest, named after the legendary pioneer, covers more than 160,000 acres of East Texas steams, woodlands, wildlife habitats, and recreational areas.
