New to Houston and have not found many trails for road bikers. This one is great, and will be even more so once all upgrades are completed. (Feb 25, 2018) - while a few spots take some navigating due to trail construction and/or need to pick up the trail on the other side, the path is wide and well maintained. Today, runoff had left a few wet/muddy spots - which left a skunk mark on my back, but that just proves I had fun. I hope future plans include signage to let trail users know what street, sights, and amenities are near each underpass.
Rode today, or tried to ride...
Numerous major detours of closed trail around the medical center area.
Would have been nice to know this info. prior to making the trip.
Perhaps, TrailLink will find a method to keep us current on this pertinent information.
Trail that was open was really nice. Bluebonnets were seen in some areas already.
Eastern sections of the trail from Mason Park to UH and MacGregor Park are so pretty! Very natural with lots of flowers, plants and wildlife. The stretch in the medical center and beyond is more urban, but very functional. Lots of recent upgrades to the trail and more is planned to expand the trail out to the city limits at Eldridge. Overall, I love this trail! #BayouGreenways
I discovered this trail back in 2012. I was made aware of the issues they had (muggings) but I believe they have been resolved. It's a wonderful trail that connects us from the medical center/museum district to the east part of downtown. I ride this trail 2 - 3 times a month between 8am and noon. I've never had a problem and always ride with female friends.
This trail is clean, smooth, well marked and well lit. I has many functioning benches and metal barriers to prevent access by larger vehicles. I have cycled this trail many times at various hours over the last 9 months going to and from downtown Houston. Although there are travelers from all walks of life, I have never been or felt threatened. However, it is prudent to be watchful- common sense for anyone anywhere commanding a wheeled vehicle. For me I am most weary of the numerous street crossings, some very busy, some have poor visibility to oncoming traffic until your tires kiss the sidewalk. At the north end of the trail one finds inspiring selfie ready urban murals.
Round-trip on this trail logs in on my GPS as 1.56 miles, if you go all the way down to Rogerdale, cross over the bayou, and come back on the north side. It does not seem to be used at all. On a weekend walk, we saw no one else on the paved trail. Now, during the week, being as it backs up to office buildings, it might get usage. Many trees have been planted, but I'm not sure they're big enough yet to give sun coverage during the hot summer months. Very smooth paved trail. Easy walking.
About two years ago, 4 punks lunged at me as I rode on the trail. Although I avoided any trouble, I swore off this trail and have not ridden it since.
Have put off taking this trail but finally decided it was time to give it a go as it hooks nicely into BB hike and bike trail.sunday morning quite a few people out riding,jogging and walking.as with any of the trails around houston you just have to use common sense With your own safety. Will definite make this a frequent trail to explore
Would be a really nice trail except it travels through a rough neighborhood. As a 6'4" 250lbs man I choose a different route via surface streets that were not so secluded.
Lots of unfinished sections where if they had just paved an extra 20 yards everything would be connected. Trail itself is very narrow with a steep drop off into the bayou around the medical center area. Also must aware of your surroundings be it the homeless that sleep under the bridges or anything east of 288 or further out west gets a little sketchy. I have never had a problem but the potential is there. It does have an underpass in the med center that connects to herman park and its a quick ride to rice university from there or down town.
Nice length, but very disjointed, and pretty ugly trail overall. Not very enjoyable overall.
I was on a road bike so had to get off and carry my bike across some unpaved sections, particularly some uphill sections in the Med Center/Hermann Park section. Turned around just west of Hiway 288 when I would have had to get off and walk the bike for a small rutted dirt spot and a homeless person was sleeping right there....if I could have ridden by I'd have ocntinued but not worth it to practically have to step over him. Sections of the trail under street overpasses in this area are somewhat scarily slanted toward the edge of the trail which just plummets to the cement below. The western end has a few good "fast interval" sections, but there are several road crossings and sharp turns where the trail meets pedestrian bridges.
