Sheldon Lake State Park: Pond Loop, Bent Pine, and Swamp Rabbit Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This may be the nearest trail to Houston to see alligators—only 19 miles from downtown. The 49-acre Environmental Learning Center area is the heart of the hiking trails, even though the park contains 2,700 acres.

Interconnecting trails, decks, and bridges over and around 27 former fish-rearing ponds furnish diverse habitats and excellent bird-watching. The ponds have naturalized and now support shorebirds, giant bullfrogs, water plants, and alligators. This is a great, easy hike for families with young children."
