Saturday June10, 2017 – Cypress Wonderland Canoe/Kayak


Experience the maze of lakes and shaded, winding bayous deep within the heart of the largest cypress forest on the Texas coast.  One of the most scenic paddling destinations in this part of our state, this site is located near Interstate 10, less than 50 miles east of downtown Houston.  Depending on the water and weather conditions, we will focus on one or more of the area’s many features: wildlife, river processes, Texas history, and the impact of human interventions. 


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. 


We will paddle through shaded areas where possible, but you should be prepared for hot weather.  Depending on the water level, our lunch stop may be taken up on shore or in our boats.  Paddling time: 4-5 hours, plus breaks for sightseeing and lunch.  Difficulty: moderate to strenuous.  Recommended donation to the Houston Sierra Club: $10.  Trip size is limited.  To register, contact Tom Douglas at or (713) 869-6026.  A detailed pre-trip information packet, including a driving map and directions, will be sent by email to registered participants
