Palmetto State Park offers excellent short trail options that can be hiked during a single outing. Palmetto Trail and Lake Trail have been combined into a single hike. The Palmetto Trail conjures scenes from the film Jurassic Park, with clinging vines, dwarf palmettos, and green ponds in the Ottine Swamp. Lake Trail circles the four-acre Oxbow Lake, formed by the meandering San Marcos River, which offers a variety of vegetation and possibly some water snakes.
