East Fork of Double Bayou
Observe wildlife and hear tales from the past along Double Bayou as you enjoy a day-long paddle on the east side of Trinity Bay, several miles south of the community of Anahuac. Visit waters that have stood silent witness to pirates’ exploits, pioneer settlements, and the birth of a future Texas governor. We will see a rich variety of habitats, ranging from salt and freshwater marshes to prairies, oak domes, and pine forest. There are also docks for recreational and shrimp boats, and two conveniently located Chambers County parks. Paddling pace will be moderate, with breaks for sightseeing and lunch. Typical Paddling time: 3-4 hours (6-7 miles). Difficulty: moderate. Participants must provide their own canoe or kayak, life jackets (required to be worn), and paddles. The trip leader can help you with advice regarding gear rentals from Houston area outfitters, if needed. Trip size is limited. A detailed trip information sheet will be sent by email to registered participants. Following completion of the outing, paddlers are invited for a Dutch treat seafood meal at a popular local watering hole with a great view of the bayou and the bay.
There is no direct fee for the trip but $10 contribution to Houston Sierra Club is requested.
