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.
The east trail head and parking lot are closed at Noble Rd (Briar Forest Dr) and Highway 6 until summer of 2019. The connector to Terry Hershey trail has some construction but is passable.
A great ride for the casual cyclist. I was out on a Sunday (late morning into mid afternoon) for about 3 hrs and found it to be it good shape. Two things that could be improved: some wayfinding signage and some intermediate "facilities"!
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.
Love the trail, long enough to really get a good work out. Very pleasant to ride thru the swamps/reservoir. Good wild life.
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
We were in Katy,TX over Christmas 2016 and rode in Hershey Park.Not knowing what to expect we chose the cyclocross bikes and that was the right choice.The paved paths are quite rolling and rough at times because of the early summer floods that impacted the trail.Segments on the east end were impacted and in some cases based away.You can get around some of the damaged areas but the last east mile is closed as it was totally wasted out.Overall an interesting ride with some sharp transitions along the way.We parked in the park on Memorial Drive off Hwy 6.Restrooms and kids park there.Would be very helpful if there was signage on the west end which connects with the George Bush Park.No way to figure it out unless you see another rider making the transition between the two.
This is a great place to walk or bike ride. With the scenery, I often exercise more without noticing because I am looking around.
Round-trip on this trail logs in on my GPS as 1.56 miles, if you go all the way down to Rogerdale, cross over the bayou, and come back on the north side. It does not seem to be used at all. On a weekend walk, we saw no one else on the paved trail. Now, during the week, being as it backs up to office buildings, it might get usage. Many trees have been planted, but I'm not sure they're big enough yet to give sun coverage during the hot summer months. Very smooth paved trail. Easy walking.
Just rode this trail today. 3-6 ft wide asphalt trail that is easy and casual for the whole family or any MTN/Roadie who just wants to put some miles in.
Lots of unfinished sections where if they had just paved an extra 20 yards everything would be connected. Trail itself is very narrow with a steep drop off into the bayou around the medical center area. Also must aware of your surroundings be it the homeless that sleep under the bridges or anything east of 288 or further out west gets a little sketchy. I have never had a problem but the potential is there. It does have an underpass in the med center that connects to herman park and its a quick ride to rice university from there or down town.
