Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

I bike this trail a lot

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.

Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

Speed trap on Terry Hershey/George Bush

January, 2021 by beeshi76

The entire trail has been rendered worthless as a meaningful bike trail. Today I was clocked and then stopped by a Constable for exceeding 10mph on my bicycle beside the dam. Just to make it clear, you cant push the pedals and stay below 10mph. If thats the park rule, then fine, just quit calling it a bike trail.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

out and back 30 to 45 miles

December, 2020 by roalmann

I start on Cinco Ranch Blvd. where it crosses Buffalo Bayou and ride to Hwy 6 where it connects to the Terry Hershey trail for a 30 mile out and back ride. I can extend to approximately 45 miles if I ride on Terry Hershey to the Beltway. Very nice trail ride. I only have to cross a few streets.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

Great trail, but underwater today.

December, 2020 by kazang1234

If you’re headed to the park today be wary. There are areas that are still under water from the heavy rains this past weekend.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

More than expected

November, 2020 by mpayan_87

It’s a great trail and best part it connects with another trail which makes it even better for longer bike rides

Sims Bayou Greenway

Nice Ride

October, 2020 by victoriarenee1

This ride was a great start to my day. Not too challenging but def has some moments where you have to push. Beautiful scenery. Didn’t like that it was so close to so many plants (and a waste site) but it was still a great ride, nonetheless. From the start of the trail to the feeder it was about 3.3 miles and so from Milby park back you’re looking at about 6 and a half miles. I ended up going down to the feeder and then back a bit and up Arizona and back around to add a few miles. All in all, locked in approx 8 miles. My goal was 10 but I’ll make up for it on the next ride.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

It’s Getting There

October, 2020 by jonvink

The city has done an amazing job with this trail. Not long ago it was impossible to ride a bike in Houston without risking life and limb. But, here, slowly coming together is several miles of very nice bike pa a.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

ride from Barker Cypress

September, 2020 by conganimal

It was very nice, highly recommendable

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Amazing Urban Bike Trail

September, 2020 by jimgoza

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.
