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.
Biking or on foot is the only option at this route
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.
Thank you we have never had such a beautiful trail in southwest Houston I love it it’s just 10 min away from my house I love it thank you the views everything is just amazing
This is by far one of the worst bike trails I’ve been on. There’s too much construction. The trail is not clearly defined and you have to make many streets turns to get onto other segments of the trail. Very fragmented and difficult to navigate. There’s no more than 1 mile of straight trail at a time and makes biking very difficult. There’s better trails in Houston¿
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.
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.
