Southbelt Hike & Bike Trail

First Bike Trail

July, 2024 by lawdog112

Excellent bike trail for first time riders. Just over 6 miles total when you do the loop is perfect! Plenty of room for bikers and walkers. Nice scenery. Saw several different birds, turtles and a snake.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

fine for getting miles in

June, 2024 by sbecker.fl

Not much to look at if that is your thing.

Sims Bayou Greenway

The trail is now complete

June, 2024 by belladon12

If you start this trail at the Milby Park trailhead, it will continue, unbroken for more than 20miles one way. The current map is outdated and incomplete. The trail is great, always with a breeze as it runs along the bayou with gentle slopes sing lots of flora and fauna along the way. The only confusion is where you must cross over into the other side before Scott St.

East League City Trails

Bike paths are growing

June, 2024 by eugene.r.schwanbeck

Egret Bay has the best section, 96 (League City Parkway) will soon have more bike paths. Hopefully more to come!

Halls Bayou Greenway Trail

nice ride but …

February, 2024 by yz9vcbvtqd

It’s a nice ride but I hate that ppl can’t respect the little nature we have in Houston. It’s has a lower income area around it in some places and it just seems with that ppl don’t respect what little they have.

Spring Creek Greenway

Started at the trail head off 69 and went as far construction and returned. A good 30+ miles. Surface was smooth and not too much elevation. A really nice ride through the woods with nice views of the river.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Totally worth the ride! Scenic, challenging, and peaceful! Absolutely love it!

West White Oak Bayou Trail

Map needs to be updated with the additional trail completion

November, 2023 by tgloyer

The trail now extends to Jersey Village. There are still a few short sections that have not been completed.

MKT/SP Rails to Trails (Heights Hike and Bike Trail)

Beautiful trail with access to bars, restaurants, shops, easter eggs

October, 2023 by darith2000

Beautiful views and access to cool spots at Heights and M-K-T including bars, restaurants, shops, crepe shops, parks, ice cream shops, ebike shop, lots of amazing scenic artwork easter eggs (behind Aztec Events & Tents ¿) if you pay close attention to the secret openings! Cyclists receive 10% discounts at some spots like Highline Park Bar and Juice Land. There's even a bike path to H-E-B and other spots shopping spots along Shepherd. Lots to do around this area

Greens Bayou Greenway

Unsafe connection from east side to west side

September, 2023 by mtiscornia54

There is an east side of 45 section and a west side of 45. Unfortunately, there is no safe connection between the two sections. You need to ride the 45 access roads on each side, both busy and no bike lanes or sidewalks. Not recommended. And I did not traverse 12 miles of trails. Disappointed. There is potential.

Spring Creek Greenway

Good Day

August, 2023 by jerrarno

Great ride with a 16 mile trec - good day!!

Halls Bayou Greenway Trail

Dumping

June, 2023 by peggyt400

I agree with the 2 other reviews. In addition to lack of safety rest and water stops the illegal dumping of a nice green space is terrible. What is being done about this? I don’t see these problems on Allen Parkway, Memorial Park, or Hermann Park . Not on Braes Bayou either.
