Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Chisholm Trail

Easy riding

March, 2020 by mmezedd_tl

The Chisholm Trail is a well maintained, paved, neighborhood ride that passes behind many beautiful houses and shopping areas and connects many small playgrounds. It is wide, well marked and mostly flat and goes underneath any major road so is a continuous ride. . It is mostly sunny and exposed. There is no parking at Chisholm Trail Park at one end but you can park in a nearby elementary school on Marchman Way. The easiest parking is at the other end at Harrington Park.The Bluebonnet trail links with it near the dog park. I have found conflicting sites stating the distance of the completed loop from Legacy Drive to Harrington park down one side and then back the other side of the creek.

San Antonio River Walk Hike & Bike Path

I hiked the entire SA Riverwalk with my dog!

March, 2020 by davidtearley

The Riverwalk in San Antonio is not only the most adventurous trail, but it also takes you through several different areas of society and provides education. The Riverwalk works in a fascinating way, unlike any other in the nation. You will see different types of wildlife, bikers, paddlers and some great views of downtown. Even the Missions along the Riverwalk are dog friendly. We have been to those as well - https://placesforpups.com/i-hiked-the-15-mile-san-antonio-riverwalk-with-my-dog/

Hike (or bike) the San Antonio Riverwalk, you will not be disappointed.

Halls Bayou Greenway Trail

Nice Views But A Bit Isolated

March, 2020 by snp_tl

I agree with the first comment, this trail is 3 miles of only a few rest areas, minimal to none break exits, and is somewhat quite isolated not to have any law enforcement.

It is however, a good trail for this part of Houston and scenery, although, I would suggest having protection and/or a companion during any walk, runs, or bike rides if your going the distance.

Campion Trail

closer due to flooding.

March, 2020 by kennytavon

As I used to live right off of Lake Carolyn , this used to be my go to running, cycling and rollerblading trail. I have since moved yet I still return every so often. It is a great, wide paved trail but it’s not super crowded. Currently it is closed due to flooding of the Trinity and none of the access points are open at least in the Irving area

Brays Bayou Greenway Trail

the worst

March, 2020 by eyad20051

This is by far one of the worst bike trails I’ve been on. There’s too much construction. The trail is not clearly defined and you have to make many streets turns to get onto other segments of the trail. Very fragmented and difficult to navigate. There’s no more than 1 mile of straight trail at a time and makes biking very difficult. There’s better trails in Houston¿

Historic Battlefield Trail

A bit confusing to follow leaving downtown area near the campus but if you follow the map it works pretty well. Flat, uncrowded trail.

Wichita River and Holliday Creek Trails

Great ride

March, 2020 by malcolmelliott

I grew up in Wichita Co. Moved away some 40+ years ago. I was amazed that this jewel of a trail was in Wichita Falls. My wife and I rode this trail last October, beautiful weather and the Thunder Birds were flying overhead. It was a great day, 33.5 miles in under 165 minutes. We look forward to another ride next time we are in town.

Paul G. Boorman Trail

Excellent!

March, 2020 by mellissa.henry1

This trail is excellent for families! Great path for walking, riding, or roller blading!

Schertz Parkway

This is not a trail!!!

February, 2020 by galeanaaldo

This is a sidewalk on the side of a road! I think TrailLink needs to look up what a trail is...

To me, a trail is usually a path, track or unpaved lane or road or along rivers.

George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail

East trail head still closed 2/1/20

February, 2020 by lizlevanriley

You can connect from the Terry Hershey trail but it is annoying not to have updated information on trailhead and parking status. What’s a good source? Great ride once you get to it, though!

Mission Hike and Bike Trail

great trail

January, 2020 by gregg27

Quiet and peaceful ride

Buffalo Bayou Trail

Scenic intown, fairly level, well traveled trail, for relaxed ride

January, 2020 by jkhiser

We rode on Jan 27, 2020, starting at Elenor Tinsley Park, riding clockwise to west end, back to east by UHD, then completing loop. Who knew Houston had a river ride nearly as scenic as in San Antonio.

Trail alternates between street and lower level, so there are gentle hills. Lots of maintenance underway, so appears the city takes it seriously.

Best bathrooms ever on a trail at Lost Lake.

But, you do have to pay attention to the map to put together a ride of the length you desire. Fairly well signed.

This is a slow scenic ride, not a workout ride, due to the number of pedestrians, dog walkers on one side with dog leash across the trail, etc., esp around dog park (which is prolly one of the best dog parks we have seen).
