KARNACK, TX — More than 50 miles of paddling trails were officially opened Saturday at Caddo Lake and the Big Cyprus Bayou as park authorities and city leaders saw two years of work come to fruition.
“This is a great opportunity for eco-friendly tourism to expand in this area,” said Harrison County Judge Hugh Taylor.
“It is low-cost, low-impact and high return. I expect to explore the trails.”
The dedication ceremony opened 10 trails — with names such as Cathedral, Hell’s Half Acre, Old Folks Playground and Turtle Shell — adding to the 38 trails already recognized by Texas Parks and Wildlife across the state, for kayak and canoe enthusiasts to enjoy.
The trails are marked so a person using the path will be able to maintain the trail, but avoid detracting from the natural environment.
