The Brays Bayou Connector Trail provides a useful link for cyclists and pedestrians between Arthur Storey Park (and the adjacent Brays Bayou waterway) and the Westchase neighborhood and business district. A looping trail surrounds the park grounds on the southern end of the route, while the remainder of the trail follows a linear path to the north, with a series of road underpasses helping trail users avoid dangerous crossings.
At the northern end of the trail, the Library Loop Trail provides a means to extend your trail journey, with additional pathways connecting to the educational campuses within the community. Long-term plans include extending the Brays Bayou Greenway Trail to provide a seamless connection within Arthur Storey Park.
Parking is available within Arthur Storey Park, located at 7098 W Sam Houston Parkway South in Houston. Additional parking is available along the trail's route, including at Harwin Park (11305 Harwin Drive).
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.
