George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

Great trail, but underwater today.

December, 2020 by kazang1234

If you’re headed to the park today be wary. There are areas that are still under water from the heavy rains this past weekend.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

More than expected

November, 2020 by mpayan_87

It’s a great trail and best part it connects with another trail which makes it even better for longer bike rides

West White Oak Bayou Trail

No Connector at Stude Park

November, 2020 by mbrand_tl

There was no connector at the Studemont/Stude Park location coming from Buffalo Bayou Greenway Trail downtown. I was disappointed as I had ome from Spring TX to make a 17 mile ride. I had planned on beginning my ride on the Buffalo Bayou Trail and move to the White Oaks Bayou route. Also at Stude Park there was a split with one of the paths appearing to continue on the long route but it was a hard dead end at the bottom of a hill. Otherwise the trail from Stude Park into downtown was a very pleasant experience. That path is in good condition but can become crowded with pedestrians at times

Columbia Tap Rail-Trail

Issues

October, 2020 by jonvink

This trail has issues ... as noted in the reviews here. My issue was a dog running free and the owner not caring. It’s too bad because this would be a great little cut theough from Brays Bayou to downtown.

Sims Bayou Greenway

Nice Ride

October, 2020 by victoriarenee1

This ride was a great start to my day. Not too challenging but def has some moments where you have to push. Beautiful scenery. Didn’t like that it was so close to so many plants (and a waste site) but it was still a great ride, nonetheless. From the start of the trail to the feeder it was about 3.3 miles and so from Milby park back you’re looking at about 6 and a half miles. I ended up going down to the feeder and then back a bit and up Arizona and back around to add a few miles. All in all, locked in approx 8 miles. My goal was 10 but I’ll make up for it on the next ride.

MKT/SP Rails to Trails (Heights Hike and Bike Trail)

Nice, Easy Ride

October, 2020 by victoriarenee1

Loved this trail. First ride in YEARS. Did a about 7.3 miles. Through the Heights. Loved looking at all of the beautiful homes. The bridge is temporarily shut down. FYI.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

It’s Getting There

October, 2020 by jonvink

The city has done an amazing job with this trail. Not long ago it was impossible to ride a bike in Houston without risking life and limb. But, here, slowly coming together is several miles of very nice bike pa a.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

ride from Barker Cypress

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Amazing Urban Bike Trail

September, 2020 by jimgoza

I've ridden the length of the marked Brays Bayou trail from Broadway st. near Hobby all the way west to where Brays Bayou merges with Keegan Bayou. I've continued west on Keegan Bayou to I-69 - but the paved trail keeps going!
Does anyone know how far a marked, rideable trail goes west on either Brays Bayou or Keegan Bayou? And/or East past Broadway St.? The Brays Bayou trail must be upwards of 40 miles of actual rideable trail, end to end.

Harrisburg and Sunset Rail Trails

Pretty good

September, 2020 by tejuda

Nice and shady. only annoying thing is it crosses a ton of streets so there is constant stopping.

Fault Line Trail

trail is rocky

September, 2020 by ommojojojo

Biking or on foot is the only option at this route
