PADDLING is the JULY OUTDOOR ACTIVITY of the MONTH!!!
AND there are ~~~~ 2 Coastal Paddling Trails ~~~~~
The Lighthouse Lakes Paddling Trail was the very first Texas Paddling Trail and is actually a series of four loops ranging in length from 1.25 miles to 6.8 miles. The trails meander through an extensive black mangrove estuary, into sloughs and back lakes near the historic 1857 Lydia Ann Lighthouse on North Harbor Island. Paddlers can glide through mangroves and seagrass flats that provide outstanding bird watching and fishing for red drum, spotted seatrout and flounder in the maze of tidal channels and flats. The Lighthouse Lakes Paddling Trail is part of Redfish Bay, a minor bay straddling Aransas and Corpus Christi Bays.
Trail Length: The trail complex is made up of four trails ranging in length from 1.25 to 6.8 miles. Paddling Time: 45 minutes to 3 hours depending upon the trail.
The Mustang Island Paddling Trail consists of the North Trail (8.5 miles), the Shamrock Loop (5.24 miles) and the Ashum Trail (6.8 miles). All of the trails follow the western shoreline of Mustang Island in Corpus Christi Bay, and cover some of the best shallow-water fishing areas in Texas. The Ashum Trail follows the shoreline of Corpus Christi Bay over a firm sand bottom and allows for outstanding bird watching as well as sight-casting opportunities. The Shamrock Loop skirts the beautiful, protected waters of Shamrock Cove, where it connects with the North Trail, which follows the shoreline to East Flats and then meanders through marsh and spoil islands to the Island Moorings marina in Port Aransas. Trail Length & Paddling Time will vary.
