People were getting mugged on this route a few years ago, so I would advise traversing in groups, as it's still dicey, in my humble. Lots of trash, broken glass, and there's a stretch through the ward where there's a stop sign every 50 yards or so at every street crossing. It's a shortcut to downtown, but not my fave trail.
There was no connector at the Studemont/Stude Park location coming from Buffalo Bayou Greenway Trail downtown. I was disappointed as I had ome from Spring TX to make a 17 mile ride. I had planned on beginning my ride on the Buffalo Bayou Trail and move to the White Oaks Bayou route. Also at Stude Park there was a split with one of the paths appearing to continue on the long route but it was a hard dead end at the bottom of a hill. Otherwise the trail from Stude Park into downtown was a very pleasant experience. That path is in good condition but can become crowded with pedestrians at times
This trail has issues ... as noted in the reviews here. My issue was a dog running free and the owner not caring. It’s too bad because this would be a great little cut theough from Brays Bayou to downtown.
This ride was a great start to my day. Not too challenging but def has some moments where you have to push. Beautiful scenery. Didn’t like that it was so close to so many plants (and a waste site) but it was still a great ride, nonetheless. From the start of the trail to the feeder it was about 3.3 miles and so from Milby park back you’re looking at about 6 and a half miles. I ended up going down to the feeder and then back a bit and up Arizona and back around to add a few miles. All in all, locked in approx 8 miles. My goal was 10 but I’ll make up for it on the next ride.
Loved this trail. First ride in YEARS. Did a about 7.3 miles. Through the Heights. Loved looking at all of the beautiful homes. The bridge is temporarily shut down. FYI.
The city has done an amazing job with this trail. Not long ago it was impossible to ride a bike in Houston without risking life and limb. But, here, slowly coming together is several miles of very nice bike pa a.
I've ridden the length of the marked Brays Bayou trail from Broadway st. near Hobby all the way west to where Brays Bayou merges with Keegan Bayou. I've continued west on Keegan Bayou to I-69 - but the paved trail keeps going!
Does anyone know how far a marked, rideable trail goes west on either Brays Bayou or Keegan Bayou? And/or East past Broadway St.? The Brays Bayou trail must be upwards of 40 miles of actual rideable trail, end to end.
Nice and shady. only annoying thing is it crosses a ton of streets so there is constant stopping.
I liked riding through EaDo
I wish there weren’t so many sections where you have to stop for traffic, other than that it’s ok.
This is an awesome trail when it is not under construction, and is well-deserving of five stars. I wish this app would let you know when a trail is not completely accessible, or in this case, completely unusable.
I have been all the way from the western terminus (Keegan's Bayou - Kirkwood at W. Belfort) to MacGregor Park. Most of it is fairly pleasant. However, construction at various points is problematic; as of late June 2020, you're looking at wonky intersections at Hillcroft (soon) and Stella Link, and many of the other ones are at angles relative to the trail so that you really have to contort to make the turns (recumbents, beware!) Outside the West Loop there is only one paved underpass (Gessner), the rest are your choice of unpaved dirt/mud or surface-level intersection. The West Loop/Braeswood intersection is a KNOWN DEATH TRAP, so utilize extreme caution here. There is construction east of 288 near Ardmore that is also problematic.
The biggest hazard, though, is west of Gessner. This area is populated by our transient neighbors, particular west of the Keegan's bridge. There is a fair amount of litter near the trail, and here and there are camp sites with tents and ...other things. The I-69 underpass is a No-Go zone if you are not in a group or riding pre-dawn/post-twilight. There is a large transient encampment there, it is not well-lit or near cross-streets, and they sometimes block the trail with debris (carts, lawn chairs, etc) This morning I was also chased by one of their dogs going through.
West of Wilcrest/Murphy the trail is unpaved for about a quarter-mile. There is no parking at the western end, unless you want to go park in the shopping center just south.
