    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Palmetto State Park (270 acres) is named for the tropical dwarf palmetto plant found there and is located in Gonzales County, northwest of Gonzales and southeast of Luling. The park abuts the San Marcos River and also has a 4-acre oxbow lake. Activities include picnicking, hiking, fishing, bird-watching, nature study, swimming, tubing, and canoeing.

    Pedal boats and canoes are available for rental. Boaters can put in at Luling City Park and travel 14 miles down the San Marcos to Palmetto, portaging around one dam along the way; or put in at Palmetto and take out at the Slayden bridge, 7.5 miles downriver. It is a two-day trip from Luling City Park to the Slayden bridge, overnighting in Palmetto along the way."
