Mineral Wells State Park Shelter Loop Tree ID Trail - Texas, United States

This trip was created using EveryTrail. Like what you see? Get the FREE iPhone App and share your trips.
Lake Mineral Wells State Park is a fantastic 3,200 acre site within the Texas Parks & Wildlife system.  It includes some very rugged terrain and some of the oldest trees in Texas.  The ages of many of the trees have been verified through core samplings by the Ancient Cross Timbers Consortium out of the University of Arkansas (link below). 

There is also a small lake with good fishing where canoes may be rented for better access.  This trail is in the Penitentiary Hollow area of the park.


You can take this trip on the trail with you! Go to EveryTrail for information on how to download the free ap to your iPhone or Android phone. Once you have downloaded the ap, you can download the Tree Trail and walk the trail with your phone as your guide.

There is plenty of rough terrain with drop offs so keep a close eye on the children.
