Two trails, the Tveten Trail (0.9 miles, concrete paved path) and the Bayou Loop Trail (1.5 miles, gravel path). Tveten Trail (Length: 0.9 mile loop) This accessible trail takes you to the banks of Bastrop Bayou. It meanders through the riparian zone and emerges amongst mature live oaks in the floodplain. See basking turtles in the Bayou, or scan the forest for migrating songbirds. Bayou Loop (Length: 1.5 mile loop) Follow this gravel trail along an upper reach of Bastrop Bayou while enjoying a more remote outing. Stop at the observation platform to listen for wintering wood ducks, watch for white-tailed deer, and open your senses to the natural world in this part of the floodplain forest.

We tried it today for the first time and my kids loved it. Great for trail running and for training.

The gravel trail was a nice break from the concrete I have been walking since Brazos Bend State Park has been closed from the flooding. There are some parts of the trail where runoff has occurred and becomes a bit rough and some parts are overgrown, but a great walk all in. Will definitely return.

We took the Bayou Trail, and it is nice. not perfectly groomed but very easy walking on the gravel. Our dogs are old and not used to the heat so we turned back after less than a mile.

It was AWESOME! It's local, it's clean, the trails are great!! The paved one has inclines and declines with lots of curves and turns that make it fun and easy and the unpaved is still very curvy with the inclines and declines but the loose gravel and the natural changes made by rain and run-off keep you very engaged and make it a little riskier a path. We loved it! Naturally beautiful scenery. This is a little hidden gem in our area! I'm so glad we decided to check it out. We will be using this for bike rides on a regular basis. The Silva's give this park and its trails two thumbs up!

This trail is the best one I've been to in Brazoria County to date. The 0.9 mile trail is completely paved concrete and is super nice. The 1.5 mile trail is gravel and nice as well. No mud or spiders to deal with. There's restrooms and parking available and it does feel like your deep in the woods. The only drawback is there are really no "views" - it's just forest. But there's plenty going on - I even ran across some deer. Great trail and highly recommended.
