About the SFA Interpretive Trail:
The full name of the SFA Interpretive Trail is "Stephen F. Austin Experimental Forest Interpretive Trail System," so you can see why we're sticking with the short version.

These two trails inside the Stephen F. Austin Experimental Forest are tucked away in the heart of the Piney Woods. The SFAEF itself borders the Angelina River and the Alazan Wildlife Management Area.

The SFA Interpretive Trail is actually two trails covering around three miles in length, and lead visitors through the Angelina National Forest and habitat of mature bottomland hardwood, southern pine and mixed pine/hardwood forest. Along the way, walkers may spot up to 150 species of bird and 80 different kinds of butterflies.

The trail is paved and was the first major trail in this region designed for universal accessibility.

To find the trailhead, go west on State Highway 7, about 6-7 miles outside Loop 224, to FM 2782. Go south on 2782 about 2.5 miles to the entrance of the SFAEF.
