Veterans Day Hike and Cookout - Palmetto SP

  • Nov 12, 2012 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join the Nature Hounds for this beautiful, unique hike in nearby Gonzalez (an hour drive from San Antonio).

The park is named for the Dwarf Palmetto, which grows abundantly in the park. The San Marcos River runs through the park and creates the 4-acre Oxbow Lake. There are many bogs throughout the park that are surrounded by dense vegetation, giving the park a jungle-like atmosphere. There are also several stone buildings in the park that were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the 1930s.

I've only been a few times before, so this visit will be loosely planned out as to give us some freedom to explore. We'll meet at Park Headquarters and go from there.

If you wanna stick around and enjoy the day after the hike, we plan to light up the grill and enjoy a nice little cookout and picnic! Bring something for the grill or other items to share if you want to participate. You're also more than welcome to just pack up a lunch for yourself. Either way, it'll be a great afternoon! If you are participating in the cookout, please place in your RSVP what you'll be bringing.

Find out more information about the park HERE.

Check out pics from our last meetup HERE.

Caravan 8AM: If you'd like, I'll be departing from the "TA" truckstop on the corner of FOSTER and 10. Easy on and off from the freeway two exits past 410 on the way outta town. It's very easy to spot.
