Welcome to the Trail Between the Lakes site


The 28-mile, Trail Between the Lakes, hiking trail extends from Lakeview Recreation Area on Toledo Bend Reservoir to Highway 96 next to Sam Rayburn Reservoir. It is a foot-trail only, no motorized vehicles, bicycles, or equestrians riders are allowed on the TBTL. Hiking is at its best in the early spring and fall when the forest is filled with blossoms and colorful leaves. This is a working National Forest, so signs of timber harvesting may be present. Many parts of the trail have no cell phone service, so "Be Prepared". 

The attached pages contain Trail Information with maps, Photos, Volunteer information, and Emergency contacts.


This website has a "Pull down MENU" at top-left corner of page and page links are listed across the bottom of all the pages.
