Martin Dies Jr. State Park hugs the shores of the 15,000-acre B. A. Steinhagen Reservoir on one side and borders the Angelina–Neches–Dam B Wildlife Management Area on the other. Its location makes it a great place to spot some wonderful birds such as herons, cranes, Swainson’s warbler, bald eagle, and painted buntings. In fact, over 250 species of birds may be seen at Martin Dies along with a glimpse of an alligator snout or two (if hiking with pets, keep them on a short leash). The park sits along the northeast edge of the Big Thicket National Preserve offering hikers a tidy introduction to the swampier Thicket environs and the east Texas Pineywoods.
