Padre Island National Seashore Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"As you leave the city of Corpus Christi, the wide-open spaces of the world’s longest undeveloped stretch of barrier island beckons you like a siren’s song. For those tent campers who live too far inland, a yearly journey to Padre Island National Seashore is an essential requirement for renewing the soul in a way that only a great body of untamed water can. As you look over the waves to an endless horizon, you instantly begin to feel the big city leave you, and a primal connection to the earth return.

Whether you are racing across the Laguna Madre or walking on the beach alongside sea birds racing the tides, spending a few days at Padre Island National Seashore will help shake whatever big-city ills you showed up with"
