Galveston Island State Park Trail

Galveston has changed dramatically from the previous reviewer's experience. It's recovery from Hurricane Ike's devastation in 2008 is remarkable. The Historic Pleasure Pier wasn't even under construction when the last review was done. Galveston Island State Park has oodles of new facilities and over 15,000 new trees have been planted to start to replace the canopy lost by Ike - with another 10,000 to go. This includes large Live Oaks and Palms running the full 4.5 mile length of Historic Broadway Boulevard. All that said, I'm looking forward to hiking the GISP trail, have only run it during our annual New Year's Day fun run. Have kayaked from the park and that's awesome too, especially during migration - we're a first landing for tons of migrating birds and monarchs. Oh, also, don't miss the 3rd largest Mardi Gras celebration in the U.S. every year - SUPER fun! Even though I live here, I give it 4 stars because there aren't any mountains nearby! :)

Great hike, it does get difficult the further high you get but its well worth the view from the summit.

It was a great hike if you stick to the trail. They are missing a few trail markers but, as long as you stick to your right your good. The view from the summit is worth this hike.
