Most of the trails were flooded out after a heavy rain last night. Expect to get your feet wet on any of these trails on any given day though.

This is a decent trail, though the last bit hasn’t been maintained so it’s impassible unless you have full leg coverings. We saw many birds. There are a few man made overlooks along the trail. Being southeast Texas, there was almost zero elevation gain. For the Houston area id say this is definitely one of the more visually pleasing state parks, since it has the water and marsh land.

Great walk! The different loops are short enough to do all in one day! Definitely go on a cooler, overcast day as there is NO SHADE. We brought hats and an umbrella to stay out of the sun. There are a ton of different birds to see, our favorite was the beautiful barn swallows!

Seen two snakes in two miles watch your feet. Overall nice scenery

muddy and windy but the does loved it! will go back to fish and kayak

Due to tides and recent rains most of the trails were inaccessible without knee high boots. Nice area I’m sure when the trails are flooded.

The trail is currently flooded, so I couldn’t go through it. I did go on the observation tower, and there’s an amazing view from up there! Also lots of beautiful types of birds.

Lots of recent rain so everything is flooded out.

Great waterfront scenery. The trails were level and clear in most places, though quite muddy in others.

Randomly stopped in Galveston along my road trip and found this little state park. Park is well taken care of with wide trails that are mown, bridges across water, and raised platforms for watching. Lots of birds of various species.

I took my dog out on the trails, it was nice and well kept. There were lots of birds and we saw an opossum. I was hoping to see a gator but no luck today. The kayaking looks like it would be great here, can’t wait to come back and give it a try. Definitely worth checking out but it’s mostly a prairie habitat and not too exciting. If you like birds and peaceful walking trails it’s perfect.

Nice easy hike. Wide trails, marked well. If you plan on being out for a while bring water, there is not a lot of shade here. The day I went some of the trails were flooded and I could not hike them. Good spot for kayaking in the bay.

Great place to hike and fish!
