Hike the Dow Woods Trails

2.4 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Peaceful trail that showcases some of Texas' natural beauty. Quick and easy loop, good for all skill levels and families. Dog-friendly trail just outside of Angleton, TX, featuring wildlife and wild flowers.

Park off of Old Angleton-Clute Rd (see map) to access the trail. Trail is accessible year-round. There are bathrooms and an environmental education pavilion used for special events. 

Two trails, the Tveten Trail (0.9 miles, concrete paved path) and the Bayou Loop Trail (1.5 miles, gravel path).

This trail takes you to the banks of Bastrop Bayou, with chances to see turtles or songbirds. 

Bayou Loop (Length: 1.5 mile loop)
This is a gravel trail that is slightly more remote. A rest-stop at the observation platform provides the opportunity to see ducks and deer.

Spiders, oh my!!

My daughter and I decided to drive the hour and check out this short trail. It was very nice kept. The trail itself was all concrete with about 2 feet wide sections on each side of nicely mowed grass. There were some briars sticking out in the grass if you have a dog, as I did, who might get snagged up. But our German Shepherd had no issues. While on our walk we saw about 100 Golden Silk Orb-Weaver Spiders and one Smooth Green Snake. I couldn't get over the size of the Orb-weaver spiders. Thankfully, they were all above us so we never walked into their spider web. It was a very nice walk. I was a little concerned about the parking area as the road doesn't get a lot of traffic. I as worried my car would be broken into but, thankfully, everything was fine.
