The Frio at Garner State park is for some absolutely amazing riding. Especially now that the water is low. Several crossings are otherwise impassable. There is one crossing that is always wet though... you are guaranteed to touch water there. There's just something spectacular about Garner and its surroundings... i.e. the twisted sisters are mere minutes away.

I'd definitely ride out there but I would sleep in one of the MANY biker friendly bed and breakfast locations out there for a night or two. You can't fully appreciate hill country otherwise. There's so much to explore on a motorcycle.

I have no doubt a dual tourer would blow my mind away there...

2 weeks ago I floated from Mountain Breeze... same general area, just not quite as high as L&L (I think). It was definitely low, but never had to walk a section. Just scoot your back to the deep side.

Frio at garner park was nice to play in the water and hang out... never floated. Can you openly drink in a state park though?

Comal is always a nice fallback...but i don't like it. Too short, too packed, don't like the scenery, limit on coolers/drinks.

Screw the Comal river and Comal county. I don't go anywhere where the cops hide in bushes with binoculars looking to catch people having a little bit of fun with a little bit of grass. The Frio and Neches rivers is where it's at but like I said before, I heard they are low on water because of the drought.

No, Toledo bend is not a river, it's a lake but it's clean, cool and there's an all you can eat BBQ place on the way.

The biggest problem is carrying stuff on your bike. Sure, I'd love to some beers and cook up some burgers on the grill but where are you going to carry that on your bike?

floated the comal twice yesterday (only a 2hr float). very easy enjoyable float. very packed (but not overpacked). never had to walk (shallowest spot was around 4ft). water steadily moving. not as much partying as the guadalupe, but still had a great time. going back to take may daughter in a few weeks

The comal is great! Grab a cooler float, some good (canned) beers, and have some fun. If you burn easily get some heavy duty sunscreen and apply it everywhere. Last time I was out the soles of my feet burned from the light reflected off the water.

+1 for the Comal. Never have to worry about river being low. And my kids love the tube chute. We can sit at the chute and drink for hours while the kids hit the chute over and over. There is usually a good crowd partying there.

Alcoholic beverages. It is an offense for any person to:

1.consume or display an alcoholic beverage in a public place; or
2.sell alcoholic beverages within a state park.

I always have a few around a campfire. I do not make a rukus, walk around with it openly, or leave cans/bottles laying everywhere. But yeah, go somewhere else if you want to drink. With that said... I have no idea what part of the Frio people actually float and how much of it is IN Garner park.
