Brazos Bend State Park. Needville.TX

Spectacular  Park just a short 45 from downtown  Houston. This is a wonderful place to visit. Nature lovers, birders, hikers, campers and other outdoor enthusiasts, and of course sketchers will delight in an obervation tower on 40-Acre Lake trail and almost 35 miles of hiking/biking and foot trails, including an eight-mile equestrian trail system. More than 120 picnic sites with grills, water ans rest rooms.
Wildlife is diverse and abundant, more than 25 different species of mammals, Aprox 21 species of reptiles, but all them are overshadowed in general interest by the American alligator ( over 300 adults alligators make their homes in the park) Birds of 290 species have been sighted in and around the park.
Not to be missed.
