Texas Conservation Alliance and the Panola County Chamber of Commerce joined forces to nominate the Sabine Sandbar Trail on the Sabine River, newly designated by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as the 78th Texas Paddling Trail.
“This section of the Sabine River is lined with beautiful white sandbars, ideal for resting or camping, and has terrific fishing, especially during the winter sand bass spawn,” says Michael Banks, Paddling Trail Coordinator for Texas Conservation Alliance. “Paddling along looking up at the forest, listening to birds, catching glimpses of wildlife – doesn’t get much better than that!”
The Sabine Sandbar Trail starts at FM 2517 southeast of Carthage on the Sabine River and continues 15 miles downriver to McFadden’s Landing on the west side of the river at CR 438. The trail has an alternate take-out point another four miles downriver at Yellow Dog Park on the east side of the river on CR 455.
TCA and the Chamber will be organizing a launch event sometime next spring. We hope you can join us!
