Nice paved path. Good for little kids to walk the entire way. Nice boardwalks and benches for viewing wildlife. We saw a baby gator in the water and several types of water fowl.

Beautiful greenery. Lots of wildlife... be cautious of snakes, because they are definitely out there!

Very nice and accessible path. Pretty wild flowers spiders and deer ..... nice little place for fishermen! This is the WILD !!!

I love these hot walks and full of discoveries! Snakes spiders deer and a very young fawn not to mention the alligators! The night I had the joy of seeing hundreds of fireflies it was really magical beautiful and relaxing ..... before the raccoon come to strip me my trash (it's my fault I had not put in height! ) a great adventure and thank you to the RANGERS who were able to watch over me at night because I was ONLY! A beautiful experience in depth with myself and beautiful animal encounters .....

Love this trail! We have been coming to Brazos Bend twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring since my oldest was four (he is now 21). Awesome hike and you get to see alligators, turtles, snakes, bull frogs and various birds. A photographers paradise!

Our favourite trail! A nice loop around the lake. If you bring your dog keep it close and on the path as many gators can be encounter. Also, not much shade, so if taking your dog avoid middle of the day walks.

Easy trail around a lake turning into marsh lands. Nice trail to view aquatic birds including herons, egrets, ibises and ducks.

Very nice short stroll that can be accomplished in as little as 30 minutes. Most of the path is either paved or a boardwalk. The trail includes several boardwalk overlooks on the lake great for viewing the resident birds as well as bullfrogs and alligators. The previous review said this was a great spot to find baby alligators and we were not disappointed. We saw a group of nearly a dozen recent hatchlings as well as a 5-6 foot adult.

A simple, quick trail. You can take your time or run it. We saw 3 alligators! Since we were walking those 3 sighting revved up my heart rate, that’s for sure.

Nice hike, I wish the trail head was more easy accessible from the parking area.
