Mayde Creek Hike and Bike Trail

excellent and beautiful

August, 2022 by jemilina23

I like this place because it is quiet, safe and close to my house

Sims Bayou Greenway

Great peaceful walk

June, 2022 by djgd4ynfnc

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.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

My First Bike Trail LOVE

April, 2022 by fushiaflurry

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. ¿

Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

Tranquil and gorgeous

March, 2022 by sally.lechin

This is a lovely bike trail where you only encounter occasional pedestrians. The only downside is a narrow overpass bridge which makes me nervous but it’s, generally speaking, very safe and it’s great that it connects with Bush park. No need to cross roads, etc. I highly recommend it.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Update

February, 2022 by jonvink

If you ride through the Rice Ave and Chimney Rock areas you are taking your life into your own hands. Very dangerous due to construction and the contractor and COH apparently don’t care. I ride over that way often but beware. I will let you know when things change.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Construction!

December, 2021 by pmwahrer

I Agree with the construction comments. Should have read the reviews before driving 2 hours to ride. The Hockley Street trailhead starts the trail from the east but suddenly stops due to construction. I would advise not trying to start from this location. We took streets to the Mason Park (South 75th Street) trailhead to get back onto the the trail from there westbound it was hit and miss with the construction. Some places could use better signage for what way to go on the detours. For the most part the trail was concrete and asphalt. There were places in need of repair that was rough and if caught you off guard you could take a spill. The traffic on the the trail was very light due to overcast skies, windy, and being a Friday. Overall not a bad days ride and getting out of the house.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

The Construction Gaunlet

December, 2021 by riggensh

Unless you are a local Houstonian, I would not recommend this trail at this time. I met many obsticles and managed to go around, by walking thru mud, hitting a street for about 500 feet and navigating thru barriers. So I suggest NOGO if you are coming from out of town.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Lots of Construction

December, 2021 by grini

And very few signs. It was difficult to follow the route in several locations. It’s still a work in progress

Fun Weekend Ride

Lovely on a crisp Fall Saturday. A bit busy. But everyone deserves a lovey Saturday

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Trail terrain

November, 2021 by scotmandy

I was looking to do a bike run on this trail this weekend. Since I have a road bike with slimmer tires is this trail concrete or is it gravel? Concerned about punctures since I’m new to riding. Also is the construction ongoing?

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

Terrible for jogging
