- Easy access
- can be mostly birded from the car.
Trail Length: .9 mi.
This is a quick and easy spot to check within Lavaca Bay, and will likely take you 15-20 minutes.
Watch for the turnoff from the causeway (gmaps). It’s not difficult to see but you’ll drive right past it if you’re not alert.
The road is bumpy but even small two-wheel drive vehicles will make it just fine. Be careful not to block the road as you’re birding, since local fishermen also use this road frequently.
The road edge along the water has a quick, rocky drop off. This is a good place to check for sandpipers, plovers, herons, ect., so drive slow and keep your eyes on this edge. Also be watching for flyovers.
After about .75 miles the road will dead end at cement barriers, in front of which you can park and walk the rest of the way to the remains of an old dilapidated bridge.
The grassy area around the barriers may produce some sparrows.
