This trail is a nice walk/park set between nice-looking neighborhoods. You can park either on Porter Road or just off Katy-Fort Bend road at Katy Park. It's pretty. It seems like a very safe area. There are no restrooms; but it's not a long hike. As always, since it's a wetlands area, if it's warm, I recommend bug spray.
Bonus info. (I don't own an interest in either of these but they are a treat.).
--At the corner of Franz and Porter is Tiny's gas station and taco shop. Great Tacos.
--If you take Porter Road North to Morton road and go left, you will find (at the corner of Morton and Katy-Hockley Cutoff) Tex Taco. It looks like a tent, because it is. The tent is set up by a taco truck with tables. This is my daughter's favorite taco place in the whole world. I think they are only open for breakfast and lunch.
I recommend parking at the Robinson-Westchase Library for this trail. There are EV charging stations. You will need to walk around to the front of the library to get onto the Library Loop Trail. Walk a little while on the Library Loop and you will reach an intersection with the Brays Bayou Connector Trail. Turn South/Right and you're on the right trail. Most of the walk is a nice walk with pretty scenery. On warm days, you might want to use some bug spray but I went today and had no issues with bugs at all. There is a water fountain as well as a bike tire pump and a tool kit along the trail. There are also several emergency call boxes. There is also a wastewater treatment plant which is quite foul-smelling. But that is only a few minutes of the walk. When you get to Arthur Story Park, there are restrooms in a nondescript grey building. It's not obvious from a distance that restrooms are there. The men's room was surprisingly clean. If you walk up onto Bellaire Boulevard on the way back, you can go West/Left to Little Saigon or right to one of Houston's two Chinatowns.
Overall, it was a nice walk and I felt safe the whole time.
I have been riding it for almost a year. I have ridden through shallow flood waters, but never close to a gator. The number of days per year the trials are flooded is very small. This morning was the first time the trail was blocked by a down tree due to storms last night. Of course, if we have a hurricane like Harvey again, all of George Bush Park will be closed for weeks.
The trail is wonderful. Very scenic. Well maintained and marked. Wonderful for biking or running.
If you start out in spring and head towards the rest of the trail there is a piece where it just ends. You literally have to walk/ride/run along the busy highway and then cut down a hill of tall grass to connect back on the trail.. super stupid.
We love riding this trail, because not only is it an interesting & pretty ride along the river, but also you really feel like you’re in the wilderness & away from it all. Path is in good condition & well marked
I like this place because it is quiet, safe and close to my house
Don’t bother parking in the north lot and trying to ride the trail depicted on the map. Trail completely closed and blocked 1 1/2 mile south of the parking lot. Rrrrrrrrr….
I walked this today because it was close by. It is a very well kept trail. There is no shade so choose your time of day wisely. It was not crowded at all but that may have been due to the heat. I’ll definitely be back.
It is an excellent place to do any exercise, I love riding my bike ¿¿¿¿¿
We started Downtown and traveled NW to north of 610 a good ways.
Had to jump on another trail briefly where there is trail construction taking place. Stopped at Patterson Park to cool off and have a cold beverage.
All in all we really enjoyed the trail. Good signs are in place to let you know intersecting streets in some areas. Will be on this trail again.
My first and all time favorite bike trail in Houston. Public art installations along the path, water features, dog park, beautiful people & beautiful skyline view. ¿
