Armand Bayou Paddling Trail

7500 Bay Area Blvd
Houston, TX 77058

The Armand Bayou Paddling Trail follows Armand Bayou from near its confluence with Clear Lake, upstream through the Armand Bayou Nature Center to Horsepen Bayou, where alligators in excess of 10 ft. are commonly seen.

Much of the area is part of the Armand Bayou Coastal Preserve that is managed by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. More than 220 species of birds are found in the area, including Osprey, Roseate Spoonbills, various egrets, herons and pelicans.

The preserve offers a stunning glimpse into two increasingly rare ecosystems – a riparian coastal flatwoods forest and a coastal tall grass prairie.
