    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "One of many paddling opportunities offered by the Galveston Island State Park, Jenkins Bay Loop offers 4.3 miles of paddling through part of the largest estuary in Texas. The trip explores marsh grass-lined bayous, the edge of the open bay, a maze of grass islands, and the docks of waterfront homes. The paddle offers access to many bird and fish species.

    Before heading out to the launch, stop at Galveston Island State Park headquarters to pay fees, get a map, and ask questions about the water and weather conditions. The office has lots of information about birding, fishing, paddling, and other activities in the park and the surrounding area."
