Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Entitled bike riders

August, 2020 by scott358

I like to hike this trail but find that too many bike riders think they’re entitled to ride fast and own the trail two abreast. I’ve seen really disappointing behavior, especially now that more of us are at home and looking for ways to exercise outdoors. There are dedicated bike lanes and shoulders on Parmer. Let them use those if they have to ride fast.

Awesome Trail

July, 2020 by mallorytomlin97

This trail is a great showcase of what this app is all about. The scenery is beautiful and the path is very easy to follow. There are multiple spots along the way to take a quick jump into the water. Absolutely beautiful path. Lives in Houston, and I would absolutely make the drive once a week to come out here.

Gilleland Creek Trail

Skating was so-so

June, 2020 by christinanisse

There were portions of this trail that were really enjoyable on to skate. Some areas had large smooth concrete slabs allowing for some decent striding. However, there were a few portions that had smaller slabs with larger gaps that threatened to dislodge my fillings. The scenery was nice, especially near the trail head where the creek was visible. We went on a Sunday evening and it took about an hour and a half to skate. We saw a park where neighboring chickens were hanging out on the playground. The traffic was mainly pedestrian with some bicycle and a couple other skaters.

71 Toll Lane Shared Use Path

stupid

May, 2020 by harvilina

This sidewalk trail is well built but it goes nowhere it dead ends on the east side into a field and on the west side dumps you into mass construction. In a few years I think it will connect

Veloway Trail

Great for family

May, 2020 by ddysgirl42003

First visit with 10 yr old son. The trail was safe and perfect for us. ¿¿¿¿ We are excited to visit it often.

Veloway Trail

great trail

May, 2020 by tiffany.lawrencern

Great trail for skates! It’s hard to find trails that are accessible for skates so this is perfect. Smooth trail with a few area with some dirt or twigs

Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

great trail that is a solid distance.

December, 2019 by texas0341

My son and I (14 yr old) went to ride this trail. One of the things I love most about it, is that its a huge loop. So you park and start to ride and 14.5 miles later your back where you started. There are ways to shorten the ride if you don’t want to go the distance but I personally feel the distance is perfect. The scenery is amazing as the entire ride circles lady bird lake. There is some fun down hill portions to gain some speed and some good climbs to feel the burn in your legs but overall it’s a pretty straight forward trail that isn’t technical at all. I did have to check the map a few time to make sure I was staying on the right path but it wasn’t hard at all to navigate. Highly recommend!

Shoal Creek Trail

Nice walk by the water

November, 2019 by lettieprell

This is a great city trail, that passes through Pease Park, where the trail braids, enabling one to cross back and forth in several places over the river, either on rocks or by bridge. Depending on the route you choose portions of the trail are dirt, gravel or concrete. We came out on a Sunday morning, and found bikes, people and dogs all enjoying the tree-lined space.

Randy Morrow Trail

Nice bike ride into town

October, 2019 by trukas2013

We usually ride this trail from the campground/dam into town. It's a nice trail that crosses the San Gabriel River several times. The trail is shaded where you ride along the river. You have to ride through a neighborhood for a small part, but it's not hard to figure out where to go. Coming back, the ride up the dam is the hardest part of the trail, but it's doable.
In October of 2018 the bridge crossing the river into town was damaged due to flooding. Not sure if and when it has been repaired.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Courtesy

September, 2019 by mark.wilson_tl

I walk 5 miles on Brushy Creek Trail almost every Sunday. Although most bike riders ride safely, I see too many who do not. Today I witnessed an almost-tragic collision between an adult rider and a one year old child. Adding insult to potentially fatal injury, the rider yelled "Courtesy!" as he sped by. The child tottered at the very edge of the trail and the biker missed him by no more than a foot. The child's parents were also at the edge of the trail. The biker behaved as if the child and his parents should have thrown themselves out of the way, which I assure you could not have happened because the rider appeared suddenly and was riding too fast for them to react. I was walking in the opposite direction with my wife and a friend and the biker rode between us and the family as we passed one another.

The rider, an adult man who should know better, was gone in seconds and there is probably no hope of changing his attitude so he remains dangerous. The trail is posted with a few signs informing bikers to defer to pedestrians, but some riders act as though the Trail is primarily for bikers and everyone else is in their way.

What can be done? Larger and more explicit signs? Speed bumps? I wish I knew. Have there been serious collisions on the Trail?

I love walking Brushy Creek Trail, the creek, the trees, the meadows, the deer. It can be very relaxing, but incidents like this today make me furious.
