“A figure eight loop around the two main lakes at Brazos Bend State Park.”— Karl W
Family Friendly Flat, easy, and alligators!
There is swampy and open water just about the entire length of the trail with many alligators and birds. Alligators can be on or very near the trail so be mindful to not let your dog/child become a snack. There is an observation tower at the northwest corner of 40 Acre Lake that is worth climbing up.
