Gambusia Marsh Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A short but oh-so-satisfying boardwalk hike through the marshes of Texas’s northern Gulf Coast. This is especially so if you hike in the early morning when egrets, ibis, and flocks of ducks take flight in the mist and river otters laze on the boardwalk, while the bubbles of alligators swimming beneath your feet add an element of excitement to the hike.
The Gambusia Marsh Nature Trail at Sea Rim State Park is a short one, coming in at just under 1 mile long, but it is oh so satisfying. The trail is entirely made up of a 4-foot-wide boardwalk that is only inches above the watery marsh. Long, tall bamboo stalks line the path, as do marsh grasses like cordgrass, marsh salt grass, and alligator weed."
