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.

Getting There:

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.
Coordinates: 28.66398, -95.96236

Parking & Facilities:

There are no bathroom or other facilities at this site. Park on the west side of the road on the shoulder and do not block any driveway entrances.

Oh wow, how nice! Y’all been working hard to spruce it up! I hope it fills up with sweet little shops and draws lots of people!

Great news…lovely location in “downtown”Matagorda.
