Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

Limpkin with White Ibises

November, 2023 by daviddean242

While biking near the spillway, saw a Limpkin with White Ibises. Nice area. Wish it connected to George Bush Park trails.

Library Loop Trail

Homeless trail

April, 2023 by e.allen.m.94

It was a beautiful trail, but now they are so many homeless staying on the benches that it’s unnerving to walk as a young woman on these trails. And there have been many reports from other women that the homeless men are masturbating in public.

Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail

Love This Trail

February, 2023 by rnickie

This is the perfect bike route for great flat rides and also a good number of small hills and elevation changes. The Dairy Ashford to Beltway 8, Eastbound section is the most challenging in my experience. The whole route distance is a nice balanced route for a really good workout.

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

We headed West and the only thing is that sometimes the trail ends and you have to go on the other side to continue but besides that it was a smooth ride, I recommend just be safe and maybe ride with a friend

This was the first time me and my friend rode this trail and we thought it was really nice, we parked at the parking lot on Almeda and rode East but didn't get too far due to some construction but we headed

Mason Creek Hike & Bike Trail

Nice Suburban Trail

November, 2022 by michael_c_whitt

This trail is a nice walk/park set between nice-looking neighborhoods. You can park either on Porter Road or just off Katy-Fort Bend road at Katy Park. It's pretty. It seems like a very safe area. There are no restrooms; but it's not a long hike. As always, since it's a wetlands area, if it's warm, I recommend bug spray.

Bonus info. (I don't own an interest in either of these but they are a treat.).
--At the corner of Franz and Porter is Tiny's gas station and taco shop. Great Tacos.
--If you take Porter Road North to Morton road and go left, you will find (at the corner of Morton and Katy-Hockley Cutoff) Tex Taco. It looks like a tent, because it is. The tent is set up by a taco truck with tables. This is my daughter's favorite taco place in the whole world. I think they are only open for breakfast and lunch.

Brays Bayou Connector Trail

Brays Bayou Connector Train November 6, 2022

November, 2022 by michael_c_whitt

I recommend parking at the Robinson-Westchase Library for this trail. There are EV charging stations. You will need to walk around to the front of the library to get onto the Library Loop Trail. Walk a little while on the Library Loop and you will reach an intersection with the Brays Bayou Connector Trail. Turn South/Right and you're on the right trail. Most of the walk is a nice walk with pretty scenery. On warm days, you might want to use some bug spray but I went today and had no issues with bugs at all. There is a water fountain as well as a bike tire pump and a tool kit along the trail. There are also several emergency call boxes. There is also a wastewater treatment plant which is quite foul-smelling. But that is only a few minutes of the walk. When you get to Arthur Story Park, there are restrooms in a nondescript grey building. It's not obvious from a distance that restrooms are there. The men's room was surprisingly clean. If you walk up onto Bellaire Boulevard on the way back, you can go West/Left to Little Saigon or right to one of Houston's two Chinatowns.

Overall, it was a nice walk and I felt safe the whole time.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

Love it!

November, 2022 by brasherd

I have been riding it for almost a year. I have ridden through shallow flood waters, but never close to a gator. The number of days per year the trials are flooded is very small. This morning was the first time the trail was blocked by a down tree due to storms last night. Of course, if we have a hurricane like Harvey again, all of George Bush Park will be closed for weeks.

Mayde Creek Hike and Bike Trail

excellent and beautiful

August, 2022 by jemilina23

I like this place because it is quiet, safe and close to my house

Sims Bayou Greenway

Great peaceful walk

June, 2022 by djgd4ynfnc

I walked this today because it was close by. It is a very well kept trail. There is no shade so choose your time of day wisely. It was not crowded at all but that may have been due to the heat. I’ll definitely be back.
