If you've never been on the lake, no! If you look at some maps, there is an unmarked'lane' or route that will get you there safely. But there are trees on n both sides of that lane. For the most part, it is a straight line from the point at villages to the point before re the bridge, then a bit of a left turn to the bridge running on the inside of "to KD lake Palestine. Under the bridegroom run that same line until you hit the mouth of Saline and take a left. Do some searching, there is a map on here that helps some.

Yep, easiest and safest or you could idle all the way. Getting directions from point A to point B on that lake on here is about as safe as throwing rocks at a police station. There are 0 marked boat lanes on Palestine and what may look like open water could have tree tops a foot under water. Lake levels that fluctuate even a foot could put you in dangerous territory. Take advantage of the many launch points and save your lower unit until you learn the lake.

I highly recommend making a dry run so you can find a safe route. That is unless there is an off limits in effect. Palestine is probably the most dangerous lake in Texas to navigate without experience. The organizers should have allowed trailering on this lake for the safety of all the participants. Good luck to you and all the others.

I would not run in any direction from the Villages for the first time blind, especially with kids in the boat.

Agree. You can probably follow someone out and be ok.
