George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail Reviews

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.

Love the trail, long enough to really get a good work out. Very pleasant to ride thru the swamps/reservoir. Good wild life.

This is a great place to walk or bike ride. With the scenery, I often exercise more without noticing because I am looking around.

Accordion

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.

Nice long trail
