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 roadย 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.

Awesome...thank you. You are appreciated...

That’s fantastic. Great for Gorda

Well done! Most excellent! Thanks for all you do!

I couldn’t agree more our visitors need to clean up their area before they pack up and leave. Y’all have a safe and prosperous New Year

AWESOME! Thank you Cinco Davant & Friends!!

Very nice, now if everyone just picks up their own trash, this will last longer

Well done!

I'd take that full time job

This is awesome. Thanks fellow Maniacs for yalls donations!! Where and who will be responsible for this equipment? Hope not the county.
