Trip Report Exploring the Mineola Nature Preserve

The Mineola Nature preserve is a great system of trails for running, mountain biking, hiking or horseback riding in East Texas. The Preserve is just off of State Highway 69 north of I-20. Technically, the Preserve is within the jurisdiction of the town of Mineola, Texas, but the preserve is actually located a good 4 or 5 miles south of the town. The Preserve consists of a couple thousand acres and at least 10 to 15 miles of interlocking trails.
Many of the trails are swampy and wet in the spring. But they are great in the Fall. One rarely encounters other people when one is deep in the swampy areas of the Preserve. I have encountered dozens of wild hogs in the areas near the Sabine River, and many of the hogs are startled to encounter a human.
