Geocache Description:

This is a regular size cache off the Riverview Trail in Brazos Bend State Park. May not be suitable for hiking with strollers or small children.

You will need to pay an entrance fee or present a Park Pass to search for this cache. Ask for a trails map and a facilities map at Headquarters when you enter the park.

Park in designated parking areas only - no roadside parking. Bring insect repellent and plenty of water.

Congratulations to TXDinoTrax on FTF.

Be careful. There is poison ivy, poison oak, thorn vines and other uncomfortable vegetation on and off the trail. Use a stick to clear away spider webs in front of you first and to examine holes. There are all manner of varmints, critters, and wild things in the park. Don't stick your hand in a hole without first making sure there's no one home. Be "Alligator Wise" - Never approach alligators on or off the trails. Avoid alligator nests and young ones. Mothers are very protective and always near by.

Brazos Bend State Park is a 5,000-acre gem on the Upper Texas Coast just 40 miles from downtown Houston. It offers a wide variety of activities for every age: caching, biking, fishing, hiking, birding, camping, star-gazing, and opportunities to learn about Texas’ bountiful natural history via free programs and guided hikes.

The park’s scenic terrain has been carved gently over time by the vigorous Brazos River, which marks its eastern boundary. Fragments of the ancient coastal prairie survive here as do dense bottomland hardwood forests and extensive marshes, making ideal habitats for the American alligator and a rich diversity of other reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. The park is an important refuge for birds, with more than 300 species recorded, and wildflowers abound during the warmer months, drawing a wealth of butterflies.

There's so much to do here. Take your time and enjoy your visit at this awesome natural park. Visit the Nature Center to see the interpretive displays and weekend programs. Consider buying an annual Park Pass. They're valid at all Texas State Parks and you won't have to pay every time you visit a park.

The proper permits have been approved for this cache.
