St. Mary’s Bayou
St. Mary’s Bayou is a large marsh area. You can spend all day exploring here. This is a great site for birding & fishing. When the winds are high, this is a good site to paddle as there is some protection from the wind. Take a GPS as it is easy to get lost in the maze of bayous.
From Matagorda head south on FM 2031 across the bridge. The trailhead is on the east side of the road just past Snapper’s Restaurant and Bar.
