You can connect from the Terry Hershey trail but it is annoying not to have updated information on trailhead and parking status. What’s a good source? Great ride once you get to it, though!
We rode on Jan 27, 2020, starting at Elenor Tinsley Park, riding clockwise to west end, back to east by UHD, then completing loop. Who knew Houston had a river ride nearly as scenic as in San Antonio.
Trail alternates between street and lower level, so there are gentle hills. Lots of maintenance underway, so appears the city takes it seriously.
Best bathrooms ever on a trail at Lost Lake.
But, you do have to pay attention to the map to put together a ride of the length you desire. Fairly well signed.
This is a slow scenic ride, not a workout ride, due to the number of pedestrians, dog walkers on one side with dog leash across the trail, etc., esp around dog park (which is prolly one of the best dog parks we have seen).
Riding under the roads above with rolling hills is a stark contrast to trees and parks on Allen parkway. This trail has it all, always a fun ride as short or as long as needed. The pedestrian bridges are a nice touch too!
I ride this trail as much as possible, very nice, scenic, and clean. Going through the heights is always fun and the views leaving and entering the city area are really great!
Yes some parts are missing or under construction but overall it was a nice ride passing by the medical center and the zoo. Some sections seem newer than others so it’s getting better all the time.
Starting in the warehouse district by BBVA stadium is not bad, going through the neighborhoods towards Brays Bayou is questionable at beat. So much garbage on the trail made it feel like riding though a landfill. Lots of people loitering, we did not feel safe. My son asked if we could take a different route back. Travel at your own risk.
Not much by way of elevation, no appreciable mountain biking, otherwise very nice.
Great trail. Takes a little time to find the beginning. Only 3 road crossings.
Started from Braeburn Glen Park end and rode into the city. Until you reach 610 all of the road crossings involve going through the intersections and Houston traffic is not great at watching for bicycles. Certainly would be tough with kids. The paths are being worked on still but they are nice and wide where complete. Road and bayou construction breaks up the trail just before the medical center but after that you can ride fairly well in the bayou without so many road crossings. The bayou is a concrete lined channel all the way to MacGregor Park. So don’t expect a picturesque river. There are however fish visible throughout the length of the channel.
10 miles of clean and wide concrete roads to be shred with pedestrians. Sometimes you can deviate into gravel trials and vary the experience. You will enjoy this easy trial for sure.
The trail has been extended to at least 5 miles and crosses under about 4 streets including Westpark Tollway and leads into Harwin Park just before you reach Aurthur Storey Park. Plenty of Help stations along with benches.
Not too hilly but still a challenge for a recreational rider and it’s just beautiful! It’s amazing being able able to start in The Houston Heights and end in downtown! BTW: thank u Donald at TrailLink for helping w/ app issues. Great organization! TrailLink is a FANTASTIC source for trails all over Houston. Highly recommend.
