An 8.5 mile hike is is a great workout site. " The loblolly pine woodland is isolated from the main body of East Texas Pines by approximately 100 miles of rolling, post oak woodlands. This pine-oak woodland covers approximately seventy square miles and is part of most westerly stand of loblolly pines in the state. A quiet woodland and rugged hills make this park one of the most beautiful in Texas. Many species of wildlife such as white-tail deer, rabbits, squirrels, opossums and armadillos scurry through the woods. A checklist of the bird life of Bastrop and Buescher State Parks is available at the park headquarters." At a fast pace even seasoned backpacking enthusiasts will get a great workout. Tent camping is listed as available by permit within the park.

Mountain bikers are in for a great ride along the paved and gravel roads of this park. The real draw is the ride between Bastrop State park and Buescher State Park. A pleasant 13-mile scenic drive through forest leads to Buescher State Park, another beautiful forested area. Buescher State park has a 7.5 mile hiking trail as well as Spanish Moss draped hardwoods. Park Road 1C between the two is a twsiting winding hilly drive along ridges and through bottoms. The 26 mile loop is a great weekend addition to the Hikes.
