This is an interesting section of the Brazos, and in the neighborhood for many of us. It does show the impacts of suburban development as well as oil and gas E&P. This section usually scales at roughly 28.5 miles. There are no unusual hazards in this section, other than a few poorly executed erosion control/bank stabilization projects and a bit of exposed pipeline. This segment does go past the back side of Brazos Bend SP and can be quite birdy.

The put in requires a bit of a walk but is pretty easy once you're there. The take out is tough.
