Conroe, Texas
Seat of Montgomery County on southern edge of Sam Houston National Forest with towering pines, rolling hills, and woodland lakes. Backpacking along the 127-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail amid the unspoiled beauty of the forest is popular with hikers, where they often see rare and uncommon birds, including the red-cockade woodpecker. The county is known as Birthplace of the Lone Star Flag. In 1839 the state legislature adopted the flag designed by resident and patriot, Dr. Charles B. Stewart, as the official state flag. Resorts, golf and tennis, campgrounds and marinas dot the tree-lined shore of Lake Conroe.

Just down Lake Conroe Parkway is the town of Montgomery where you can take a self-guided tour of historic homes, buildings and antique shops.
