Biking Permitted

Bicycling is a healthy and enjoyable activity that is available in many of the Wildlife Management Areas of Texas.

Bicycling is a good way to move around the island. The north end of the island (throughout the runway/headquarters complex, extending down the road system to the lighthouse and including the beach) is available for unsupervised bicycling, wildlife viewing, and hiking during daylight hours only. Note that such activities are not allowed while public hunts are in progress. Guided wildlife and natural history tours will be scheduled periodically. A Limited Public Use (LPU) Permit or an Annual Public Hunting (APH) Permit is required for all persons, except for youth under age 17, who must be accompanied by a permitted adult.
