10 Texas Paddling Trails to Open on Caddo Lake and Big Cypress Bayou on World Wetlands Day

KARNACK – Ten new paddling trails encompassing more than 50 miles will open along a scenic stretch of Big Cypress Bayou and areas in and around Caddo Lake on Saturday, Feb. 2, to coincide with World Wetlands Day.

Five of the 10 new loop trails leave from Backwater Jack’s R.V. Park, which is nestled along the Spanish moss-draped Big Cypress Bayou shore near Jefferson. The other five trails feature put-in locations on Caddo Lake in and around Uncertain. The shortest trail (Benton Lake Loop on the Big Cypress) covers 2.4 miles round trip and meanders upstream from Backwater Jack’s. The longest paddle trail (Hell’s Half-Acre) covers 8.8 miles round trip and leaves from Caddo Lake State Park.
