Activities include camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing, birding, nature study, pedal boat and canoe rentals, swimming, tubing, and canoeing.
Very well maintained trail system with 3 main trails that one could do separately as well as in this loop. Spurs and connectors also have interesting features, some of which, we added to our loop. While very easy, it is also very pleasant and interesting as one goes through different eco systems all in one small area. Quite and peaceful as well.
In Palmetto State Park, this trail is at tent camping grounds which includes picnic tables, outdoor grills, playground, paddle boat and kayak rentals. Restrooms are located at the trailhead. The area is nicely maintained. Hike/walk is short and flat.
Small but beautiful park. We rode MTB; took our nephew with us. The trail is easy for all family and kids. The trails are in great shape. We did the loop, the San Marcos trail was closed due to recent flood activity a couple months back. The bike was fun but walking the trails would be nice as well. We saw an off the leash dog chase a deer. I am not sure if the dog made it back to the owners, I hope the dog did not kill it.
