This optional 2.3-mile loop splits off from Tashka Trail approximately 8.7 miles from the South Trailhead (traveling in a clockwise direction), and approximately 2.4 miles from the North Trailhead (traveling counterclockwise). This loop takes you through the path of destruction left by tornadoes spawned by Hurricane Rita in 2005.

The park features more than 23 miles of multi-use trails ranging from easy to moderate in difficulty. The trails hug the shoreline of Lake Lurleen and are open to both hikers and mountain bikers. The park also features a Nature Center, fishing, meeting facilities, paddleboats, swimming and a beach.

The Tashka Trail System totals approximately 23.47 miles of trails comprised on one main trail with five loops off of the main trail. This system has only two trail heads (north and south) to access the trails.
