- Robin Hood and his merry men would be mighty proud of Texas. There are four major national forests flourishing across the state. This one is the largest with close to 17,000 wooded acres and it is only about a 90-minute drive outside of the city. Spanning across three counties, it features numerous lakes, hiking trails, magnolias, birds, wildlife and lots of recreation facilities. Outdoor types can fish, hike, bike or just enjoy the call of the wild. Solitude and adventure go hand in hand in the pine-filled woods.
