Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

pleasant ride

December, 2019 by eugene.r.schwanbeck

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.

passes through questionable neighborhoods

December, 2019 by eugene.r.schwanbeck

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.

cityscape ride

October, 2019 by whitesj40

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.

Library Loop Trail

Extended!

June, 2019 by pacograph

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.

Crappy

May, 2019 by dayterj

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.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail May 2019

May, 2019 by jkunzinger

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.

terrible!

February, 2019 by tnschumacher

Don’t waste your time here if you want to road bike. Most of the trail is under construction or grass.

Great Trail Through Southside of Houston

February, 2018 by slistc

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.

Lots of recent improvements!

February, 2017 by norman.tiffany

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

WU Moms love this trail!

July, 2016 by madelinespec

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.
