Hammock Road Trail Reviews

Nice Ride

The listed 3.7 miles is from the Hammock Park ranger station to the highway intersection. The shown map does not go all the way west. There is a $2 fee to continue west past the ranger station and into the park BUT the ride through it is outstanding. Not to be missed - be sure to stop at the Cypress Swamp trail and walk the boardwalk/catwalk over the swamp.

A good walk/run/bike trail

The listed distance is probably too high. My tracker came up with 2.74 miles and I realize it can be off a bit, but probably not a mile. Anyway, this trail is a well maintained asphalt trail, six feet wide. Most of the trail has limited vehicle access, except on the east end. Five benches are on the trail. Much of the trail is shaded. The only drawback is the very east end that crosses US 27, which is very busy. This trail is a good connector between Highlands Hammock State Park and Lake Jackson. Public parking is only available at the west end of the trail.

Great Connector Trail

This trail is a great connector between Highlands Hammock State Park and the Lake Jackson Trail. Asphalt is very good.

The city ballfields just south of the YMCA on Lakewood Drive have plenty of great parking, and is also very convenient if you've planning to do the Lake Jackson Trail.

A utilitarian trail good for getting between Highland Hammock and Lake Jackson

This trail is good for moving between Highland Hammock State Park and Lake Jackson. For the first few miles on the western end, the trail winds through pine trees. As you move east, things move from woods to suburbs and you are soon crossing numerous streets. There are actually stop signs on the trail for every one of the numerous street intersections. At the larger intersections there are pedestrian signals. Traffic seemed surprisingly cognizant of cyclers and would frequently hold at stop signs so we could pass.

The ride in Highland Hammock is really nice and the ride around Lake Jackson is good too, so this trail that connects the two is definitely appreciated, even if not a destination on its own.
