Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Though this 43,000-acre coastal refuge east of Freeport was established in 1966, only in recent years has it had general public access — thanks in part to the efforts of a local volunteer group, which has funded infrastructure improvements. At the information pavilion you’ll find maps and brochures as well as the trailhead for the Big Slough Trail, a 1-mile nature walk.

From a boardwalk across the slough, you may spot Pied-billed Grebe, wading birds, Common Moorhen, Purple Gallinule (spring and summer), and, from fall through spring, various dabbling ducks. The trail continues past the slough, looping through low woods that can be good for migrant songbirds, though the mosquitoes are often so bothersome that you may be discouraged from going far."
