STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE PARK: Trail building work continues at SFA. Approximately 4 miles of trail has been built. Multiple bridge structures have been secured in place and await wood decking for completion....we are awaiting feedback from donors for lumber.

Keep your eyes open for the next work day...people are working multiple weekends each month.
