Guadalupe River State Park, Loop Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This 1938-acre park has 4 miles of frontage on the Guadalupe River, a cold, clear stream that passes through some of the most scenic country in Texas. Many park visitors enjoy tubing or canoeing the river rapids, as well as swimming, fishing, or just relaxing under the huge bald cypress trees lining the banks. Exercise caution, however, as there can be strong currents and hazards such as rocks in the river. There is easy river access from the day-use area, which has parking, restrooms, and picnic tables. Camping options include a walk-in campground and sites for RVs and tents.

There is a stock tank at the trailhead, as well as benches and a picnic table in the shade. Head down the dirt and rock double track, which gradually descends, hiking between scattered trees and brush on either side. Soon you will pass a turnoff for Loop 1. You can take it now and come back along the main trail, or stick to the main trail now and hit the loop on your way back. Both alternatives will minimize backtracking."

"Central Texans flock here to cool off in the Guadalupe River, but the park also offers easy hiking on multiuse trails that loop through live oak savanna and along bluffs above the river."
