- Located within the scenic Guadalupe River State Park are 3 miles of hiking trails. These trails will allow visitors to the area an opportunity to explore the local flora and fauna. Additionally there is a two-hour guided interpretive tour of the adjacent Honey Creek State Natural Area, emphasizing history, geology, flora, and fauna. The Guadalupe River, with banks lined by huge bald cypress trees, is the park's most outstanding natural feature. On its winding path through the park, the river courses over four natural rapids; and two steep limestone bluffs reflect its awesome erosive power. Trees in lower elevations and bottom lands include sycamore, elm, basswood, pecan, walnut, persimmon, willow, and hackberry. In the uplands away from the river, the limestone terrain is typical of the Edwards Plateau and has oak and juniper woodlands, with interspersed grasslands.
