La Porte Hike & Bike Trail

La Porte’s trail

October, 2021 by bqd6n47fjw

On a Sunday I parked at La Porte’s City Park, 600 Little Cedar Bayou Drive. The bike trail begins to the left of the tennis courts by the blue trash can. No signs are present. I traveled to San Jacinto Community College on the trail parallel to Fairmont Pkwy (13 miles round trip). It’s an 8 ft cement paved trail in mostly decent condition. Fairmont Pkwy has a huge overpass I had to shift to first gear and huff & puffed over it. Sometimes the trail was difficult to follow due to lack of signage. A few 100 ft were under 6 inches of water perhaps the rainfall from the previous night. A small part of the trail was an unmarked business parking lot. The trail is in a rural area along with many industrial businesses. I encountered only one other cyclist and a golf cart. People are friendly. It was quiet and peaceful, but at the same time very desolate. There were a few benches and trash cans along the way. It’s not a bad trail if only a little tender loving care TLC were put into it. It has great potential. I would not recommend to those cyclists that like going faster than 8 mph.

West White Oak Bayou Trail

Sunday work out ride

October, 2021 by bqd6n47fjw

Parked at 1648 Studemont St, nice lot. I’m a 63 year old heavy weight trying to get back into shape. I quickly discovered there are lots of up hills and down hills. I found myself picking up a lot speed going down hills. You need good brakes. I needed to shift into the low gears huffing and puffing up hills. Good work out. Most folks were what I call serious cyclists. Towards the end the pavement runs out along the bayou. Later there are piles or mounts of dirt with grass on the trail as if to discourage cyclists. I have no idea what it’s about. The city should remove them. Small paths around them. From what I could see pretty much the end when you get to the Nina and Michael Zilkha park let.

Greens Bayou Greenway

Greens Bayou Bike Ride

September, 2021 by mikelake8004

This trail is really better than my rating. I gave it this rating because the trail is not complete from both sides of I-45 North. The trail has 4 parks on its path which includes Rockstar Energy Bike Park, Tom Wussow Park, City View Park and Jack Drake Park. I recommend this trail and I wish more of the community take advantage of it. Other than that, the park division needs to finish or construct the trail to go under 45 and the service road to truly complete this trail 100 percent.

This is a nice quiet trail in Houston. Watch for flooding after a heavy rainfall.

West White Oak Bayou Trail

Excellent Ride! 7am-12

April, 2021 by jared.waller

This is a great ride. I parked at TC Jester Park and headed toward downtown. Somewhere I connected with the Buffalo Bayou Trail and road until the trial ended (approx 17 miles). I ended up getting lost on the way back and ended my ride with about 50 total miles. After reading reviews, I was concerned about safety, but I found the trial safe. Some homeless under overpasses, some glass on trail. Just be aware. The only reason I gave the trail four stars is because signs are not marked well and it’s easy to get lost if you’re not paying attention

Buffalo Bayou Trail

Great trail

April, 2021 by aqah

It’s a great ride into Brady’s landing and you can connect to the U of H trail and white oak trail, then jump off and ride through the heights. It’s great, especially when we get a warmer day in December. We ride through the heights and look at Christmas decoration. Even without lights there’s a lot to look at and some great restaurants.

Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

April, 2021 by x4w6w5pbxs

Very good trail, you can start at beltway 8 and bike pretty far. There are many paths for all types of riders.
