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.

The surf is up on Matagorda Beach today! Beware the sand is soft and driving conditions are 4x4 only.

Clay 5mm might be a bit heavy! 🤣

Just came from there. 4×4 is not enough. You need high clearance. I have seen 4wd Suvs stuck as they bottomed out. Sand is deep.
