DescriptionDavy Crockett National Forest borders the Neches River in East Texas. Since logging ended in the 1920s, this pine and hardwood forest has made a dramatic comeback. One of the best ways to see the 161,500-acre area is via the 20-mile-long Four C National Hiking Trail. The trail passes through a variety of terrains—sloughs, upland forests and pine woods—as it follows an old tramway from Ratcliff Lake Recreation Area to the Neches Overlook.
Near the forest is the Mission Tejas State Historic Park, which contains a replica of the first Spanish mission in East Texas and the Rice Stagecoach Inn.
