Great trail but the damn grass is to damn high to ride through

Quiet in the springtime compared to the popular "spring breaker" beaches. Very few places to sit once you start walking, but still good for a stroll. If you have bike tires made for sand you can ride along the shore. Mind the jellyfish.

Awesome for easy trail running- you can get easily lost though!

Nice wide trail. I took my 3 year old. It's a little long for her. We'll bring the stroller next time.

I wish I had known about this a long time ago! I took my dog out for a 4 mile “hike” around this park and the adjacent trails. Lots of wildlife, very quiet. I thought it was as well maintained as it needed to be. Some bushwhacking required on the narrower trails and areas around the water are muddy. Since this is a mountain biking trail system you need to be careful of bikers coming around some of the blind turns, along with off-road vehicles on the wider trails. Other than that it is a great trail system and I will be returning!

It's overgrown and there are some muddy patches, but it still makes for an exhilarating (although short) hike!

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 trail system near Corpus Christi.. Double track and single track, walkers and riders frequent this trail. Monday pm ride every week. Check Bay Area Cycles for schedule.

This trail is in Corpus Christi, not Big Bend State Park as stated in the list.

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.

Does anyone have any experience how the camping is in the area? Looking at coming down early summer.

My daughter and I drove about 25 miles down the beach. Played in a little loose sand splashed in the water once or twice. Just a nice easy cruise.

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.

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

Pretty much it is a beach walk however, it is a comfortable walk because the sand is pretty compacted and you will get bogged down like other beaches. The constant off shore breeze will help cool you down and you can always jump in the ocean if you are attired correctly.

Take state Highway 358 SE out of Corpus Christi, when 358 dead ends at Padre Island, take a right down Padre Island drive to the end of the road ..... literally. Nice National Park Service pavilion is pretty much the only structure you will see. The trail, well when you're on a narrow barrier island there's only one trail and it's called "the beach". And there are miles and miles and miles of it. I've never seen the beach crowded (as opposed to the other beach areas on Padre and Mustang Islands). A very relaxing and beautiful destination.
