TX - Sam Houston National Forest

Has anyone been out on the park service roads? I'm in Houston, wondering if it's worth the drive to check them out.

Me too, I've heard they are still open.
You have to buy an 8 dollar permit though, but that is good for the year. Thats what I've heard.

Went by the ranger station off of 1354 (West of New Waverly) today. Its a benefit of living in the woods. The very polite park ranger behind the desk informed me of: only atvs or motorcycles are allowed on the trails. We as street legal and over 50 inch wide vehicles are restricted to service roads. Dirt or otherwise. The one stipulation she informed me of was "don't cross any closed gates, logging roads are ok too." The few I hit on a regular basis are little more than washboard. The occasional fresh logging road is found here and there. As someone wo spends a lot of time in the national forest, I would recomend respecting hunting seasons and staying on the roads. It doesn't take much to get rangers to close off access these days.
