A heavily wooded area off Upriver Road. When coming from the east, take the Sharpsburg Road exit from I-37, stay on the frontage road, go right at the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail sign, left on Upriver and sharp right into Polliwog. Polliwog has two entrances, use either one. Walk the diked area around three settling ponds. Waterbirds, songbirds and migrants. One of the top birding spots in the Coastal Bend. Good year round, but best in migration and winter.Show more

Hikers can begin their Padre Island beach hike at just about any point along this 60-mile stretch of undeveloped barrier island by driving to it as long as they have a four-wheel-drive vehicle and know how to negotiate sand. Most beaches in Texas are considered public highways. But if hikers wish to beachcomb without the annoyance of vehicular traffic, no matter how infrequent, their only option on this national seashore is to hike Malaquite Beach, the section of the beach where vehicles are not allowed. Be advised, however, that North Padre, like South Padre, is a favorite of college spring breakers.
