Included most all of this trail within a loop we did. Well maintained, easy, and peaceful. This hike includes the site of the extinct Mud Boils which were active until the early 1970s.

Very well maintained, quite, and unique. Take your time and enjoy. Did almost all of this trail within a loop plus connectors that we did in November. Some day, I would like to see it in it's wet season.

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.

A great trail for a beginner or for families. Six foot wide gravel trail and nice bridges. I walked it and never saw a soul.

The most difficult of the trails at Palmetto State Park. That being said, it was quite easy. A bit uphill at times, which I didn't find with the others. This is the most scenic of the trails.

It was great! My 5 year old had fun too! I would recommend it to older individuals as well. Good luck! Have fun

I went on March 23, 2016. I posted some images of some areas near the trial, and also the San Marcos River. It was a really nice small trail. I definitely recommend going in the spring time.

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.

The park trails are in excellent condition and it is mostly shaded

Pretty cool park

I enjoyed this park. Lots to see and very interesting how it changes from area to area.

Hiked this a couple weeks back. My wife and I enjoyed. Not too much in the way of climbing. Lots of varied topography from river bottom to forest.

Nice easy trail, beautiful!

Easy loop hikes. Swamp trail much more scenic than the lake trail.

Nice easy trail, good for walking your dog or enjoying the outdoors with your family. Trail is crushed granite and wooden decking in marsh areas.

Nice, easy trails. Hiked them all, about 5 miles total. Well maintained and marked. Beautiful scenery, saw several deer on the swamp trail.

Nice Easy Trail
