Bring your kayak, canoe or paddleboard and discover a thriving estuary on this 1.7 mile (one-way) coastal paddling trail from Bayport Park to Linda Pedersen Park. Choose to launch from either point; depending on the tide, opt to use the Bayport or the Linda Pedersen Park kayak launch.
From Linda Pedersen Park, paddlers can use the recently-added floating dock. Connected to the shore by an aluminum gangplank walkway, the Linda Pedersen launch facility is fully accessible.
For an add-on adventure for experienced paddlers, (not recommended for beginners) explore the 1.4 mile Redfish Bayou Loop, at the mid-point of the coastal trail. Signs clearly mark the full trail to indicate distance and direction.
Launch from either Linda Pedersen or Bayport, both county parks have ample parking and restrooms available. Walk to the top of the observation tower at Linda Pedersen Park for a spectacular Gulf view and read the story of Bayport while strolling among that park’s Historical Markers.
