9780899975047: The Lone Star Hiking Trail: The Official Guide to the Longest Wilderness Footpath in Texas

One of the hidden jewels of Texas, the Lone Star Hiking Trail is the only long-distance National Recreation Trail in the state. At 128 miles (including loop trails), it is also the state's longest continuously marked and maintained footpath. Located in the famed Big Thicket area in east Texas, the trail is well-suited for both short and long hikes (of up to 10 days), appealing to dayhikers, overnight backpackers and long-distance hikers. The LSHT lies between the major metro centers of Houston-Galveston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio--home to more than 8 million people just a 2-hour drive from the trail. The author, a Texas native, is an experienced long-distance hiker who has thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and many other nationally recognized long-distance trails throughout the U.S. This is the first guidebook to the trail and is officially endorsed and promoted by the Lone Star Hiking Trail Club.

About the Author:

Karen Borski Somers is a native of Spring, Texas. She graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering. Since 1994, she has worked for NASA in the field of space life sciences research. Karen thru-hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail solo in 1998 and the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail with her husband in 2004. Her trail name is "Nocona," a Comanche word meaning "the wanderer." She has hiked and backpacked on trails in 36 states, logging more than 9,000 trail miles, and has bicycled the 4,400-mile Transamerica route across 10 U.S. states from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Karen currently resides with her husband, daughter, and their hiking sheltie in Alabama. They continue their quest to summit every U.S. high point, plan expedition canoe trips, and wander on and off trails.
