Description:  Just 10 ½ miles from Coldspring, Texas, the county seat of San Jacinto County.  The settlement of “Cold Spring” began around 1850 and previously was only a trading post called “Coonskin”.  It was Stephen F. Austin’s first colony.  A one hour drive from Houston, this property contains 14 natural acres thickly forested with pine, hardwoods and large magnolias with a wet weather stream running through and surrounded by both private land and the Sam Houston National Forest.  This area’s early inhabitants dating back 12,000 years were mostly hunter gatherers and included the Bidai, Patiri, Deadose and Akokisa.  Hunting opportunities await you both on the property and the thousands of acres of National Forest land where you’ll find abundant wildlife including deer, hogs, bobcats and squirrels.

A short drive of a little more than 3 miles puts you at Trailhead #10, part of The Lone Star Hiking Trail.  At 96 miles it is the longest in Texas. Browder’s Marina on Lake Livingston is a mere 20 minute drive away and Huntsville, seat of Walker County is only 38.6 miles to the Northwest. This property will provide a quick getaway from the stresses of the city where you can enjoy a calming natural habitat.
