Point-Blank is a small town located in San Jacinto County in east-central Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 688 residents. Point Blank is near the Sam Houston National Forest, which is about 50 miles north of Houston. The Sam Houston National Forest is a very popular recreational park in east Texas. It contains the 28-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail, a portion of which has gained National Recreation Trail status. Except during hunting season when camping is restricted to designated camps, primitive camping is allowed off the trail. There are also three developed campgrounds in the forest. The trails can be hiked year round, although winter and spring are the most popular seasons due to the milder climate. Other things to do near Point Blank/Sam Houston National Forest include nature viewing of the thousands of colorful wildflowers, redbud tree blossoms and dogwood trees in spring (which is February and March in Texas.) There's also picnicking, swimming, canoeing, paddle boating, fishing, boating and hunting at Sam Houston National Park. Lake Livingston and Lake Conroe are both well-known for their year-round fishing of black bass.Also, both lakes offer pleasure boating and other water sports. Driving off-road vehicles (dirt bikes and small 4-wheelers) and horseback riding are two of the other most popular recreational sports in the Sam Houston National Forest. Special trails have been designated and developed for these multiple uses include ORVs, equestrian and mountain bikes.

Point Blank Weather & Climate

The North Texas Piney Woods Region lies in a humid subtropical climate zone. This region in eastern Texas receives more rainfall than any other region in the state. More than 60 inches annually of rain falls in the far eastern portion. This is due to the Gulf of Mexico currents that carry humid air to the region. While coastal sections see the most cloudy days statewide, northern sections see the most sunny days. This area is prone to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, generally in the springtime. The heat of summer is intensified by high humidity. During winter and spring along the immediate coast, temperatures are kept cool by relatively cool Gulf waters. In late winter and early spring, dense fog, called advection fog, can form when warm air moves over the cool shelf waters. The region is also vulnerable to hurricanes, although plenty of warning is generally given for these types of storms.
