Pretty grown over right now, probably all the rain we’ve had.

Hot, humid, lots of ant beds and mosquitoes. .Few places to sit, rest.

The only off road bike trail in the Corpus Christi area. Well maintained by volunteers. Some cool added features to ride. There is a Monday PM group ride almost year round. See or call Bay Area Cycles for schedule. I ride here about once a month on average and am very great full this park is available.

Great park! Tons of trails, well maintained. Nice clean restrooms at the learning center. Big park for kids. I got a little lost on the trails, but only because I'm directionally challenged. Spent about 3 hours here walking around exploring everything.

Love this new area for hiking and exploring as well as the kids playground that is really fun and encourages running around, playing, and climbing along with exploring the wetland areas.

We brought the cub scouts here for a 3 miler. A very nice walk in a beautiful day. The full circuit is about 1.7 miles including side paths, with only one hill. We walked it twice to push us over 3 miles.

It's the closest thing Corpus Christi has to a wildlife/wilderness trail and I use it all the time to try out my backpacking gear, be among nature, etc. Don't freak out by the labyrinth of trails. You can pretty much follow the power lines to find an exit somewhere. The trails are mostly maintained by volutneers, can get overgrown at times. Chiggers are real bad in Spring and Summer. I only gave four stars because I wish this park was bigger with even more trails and that camping was allowed.

Wide trails with canopy of mature trees over most of the trails. Great if you want to minimize exposure to the sun. View of the water from most of the trails. Serene and quiet; except for the many, many birds, haha :-). Boardwalk leads to observation area at water’s edge. Dog walking and photo shoots are popular activities.

Easy walk. Well shaded for about half. Good views of Oso Bay

Paved trail through a wooded park. Nice addition to the area. Adjacent to a small lake and some historic markers to tell the history of the area

Great camping spot on the beach. A little windy but that should be expected for camping on the gulf coast. The water was cool and sand was nice - not rocky, mucky, or seaweed-y like lots of beaches more north.

No bike trails in this park. It is a beach park with paved roads going through the campground and a lot of beach to explore and enjoy

Small and pretty basic. Needs some upkeep, but nice for being in an area such as Corpus Christi (Calallen)
