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.
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.
It is isolated..no-one uses. You can't get off in the event of an emergency, how do you get help. I see no law enforcement presence.
Though this is nice by Hermann Park. Getting to the nicer part you have to deal with narrow path and points where you are in the road and crossing traffic and train tracks.
In my opinion it needs to be on both sides of the bayou, wider and paved from beginning to end.
I rode from Gus Wortham Golf Course to the end of the Brays Bayou trail. While there are a few places that one has to cross to the other side of the bayou or where one must use crosswalks, this trail is in good condition on this portion. I park in the overflow lot for the Golf Course. The trail east of the golf course is still being worked on (I assume from Harvey damage), plus there are areas one must use roads. But only east of Gus Wortham Golf Course.
I did about 10miles from the eastern end and back. Smooth concrete and asphalt with a few cracks. Very few traffic lights. Nice workout plus two water fountains en route.
Don’t waste your time here if you want to road bike. Most of the trail is under construction or grass.
is a beautiful relaxing place to go biking
It’s a great challenge for me when I feel like rollerblading over biking. Yes. I’m one of those crazies that enjoy both modes of recreational mobility. My only complaint would be it gets crowded, so you’re bound to run into either those biking snobs or those rollerblading snobs. Idk why either camp thinks they look cool. We look like idiots lol let’s just get along! Trail was a blast though. And this app makes it a lot easier to know how to get back to your car.
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.
Location: McKee St. bridge entrance (no paved entrance) North of Buffalo Bayou heading east past Jensen Dr. until it converts into Swiney St.
This trail has no signs of entry or maintenance and is filled with homeless people seen along the trail (use caution).
The path under the 59 overpass seems especially unsafe hidden from public view and also filled with homeless and suspicious-looking people.
I wouldn't recommend and would avoid this trail (especially if alone). I couldn't find any updates by the city of Houston on the construction progress of this trail.
