Big Slough Wilderness Area

Big Slough Wilderness AreaDescription: The 3,639 acre Big Slough Wilderness was set aside under the Texas Wilderness Act of 1984 and since then, the area has been managed to remain natural, pristine, and to provide opportunities for solitude and challenge. The area is beautiful, with sloughs, oxbow lakes, and forests with heavy understory vegetation, but hiking is primitive and no motorized vehicles are allowed. Canoeing is challenging and should only be undertaken by experienced paddlers familiar with the area. 

Amenities: Hiking, hunting, fishing. No wheeled vehicles, including cars or bicycles.
