Texas Parks and Wildlife has created paddling trails all over the state of Texas. The trails are mapped and have put in and take out points. The following website has all the information that you need to know on how to get there and what to expect. We have paddled on the Galveston Island State Park trail and really enjoyed it. We plan to paddle the Christmas Bay trail soon.
Enjoy improved and maintained fishing and paddling access to rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, bayous, and bays on any of the 62 official Texas Paddling Trails available throughout the state!!
The Texas Paddling Trails is a program to develop public inland and coastal paddling trails throughout the state and support these trails with maps, signage, fishing and wildlife-viewing information, and more! These trails provide well-mapped accessible day trips in a variety of settings and for all levels of paddling experience. The paddling trails team is continually working with new community partners, so check back often for new trails to paddle, fish, and explore. (Excerpt from the Texas Parks and Wildlife website).
