Well its about the only "Long" hiking trail in Texas at between 98-128 miles depending on the loops you take, so here is the link to the site: http://www.lshtclub.com/

Also has anyone here actually hiked the LSHT? if so I'm going to try and get the time to hike it end to end early spring....

Fin,
You have picked the best time to hike the LSHT unless you can get there in the fall, before deer season. The dead of winter isn't too bad, either. Just get there after the poison ivy is dead or before it leafs out. In warm months, the bugs are voracious - ticks and mosquitoes.

I've hiked a good part of it. It's flat and sometimes swampy in wet weather. Depending on recent maintenance, it may be brushy. The only folks you will see will be near parking lots or the occasional farmer where it passes near private fields. I recommend long pants for the brush and thorns.

couple of sites for you. And get the book, it is excellent. I'm doing the trail this coming spring, using the book. maps, write up on each section, spreadsheet to follow along on the trail (if you don't want to read the narative).
