Galveston Island State Park Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Galveston Island State Park is on the west end of Galveston Island and encompasses slightly more than 2,000 acres. The site was acquired by the state in 1969 from private owners under the State Parks Bond Program and was opened to the public in 1975.
The park offers camping, bird-watching, nature study, hiking, cycling, fishing, beach access, and swimming. There are alligators and poisonous snakes in the park, so stay on the trail at all times. It’s best to hike Galveston Island State Park in the late fall through early spring, as mosquitoes and the heat can be a deterrent the rest of the year."
