Join the Friends for a 14-mile guided bike ride at the Bahia Grande with Mark Salvatore! It will be on caliche road and a slow pace for wildlife watching.
This will be a 14-mile ride, and even though it will be at a slow pace for wildlife watching, please be prepared to physically bike that distance. Please bring a tire repair kit and plenty of water. Unfortunately, there are not any restroom facilities on this route, so please plan accordingly.
The bike ride will start from the red gate on Hwy 48 marking the entrance of the Bahia Grande Unit of Laguna Atascosa. It will then run all the way to the other entrance gate to the Bahia Grande Unit, which is off of Hwy 100.
From Port Isabel – Go on Hwy 48 towards Brownsville. Go approximately 4 miles and look for a sign in the right hand side that says Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge- Bahia Grande Unit. The gate is no longer red.
