George Bush Park Hike and Bike Trail Reviews

lovely trail

s

Well used trail. Lots of shade and beautiful scenery. I wish bikers would be more courteous, and call out when passing, i.e. on your right. And slow down when high traffic and pedestrians. It is not a race. ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

East trail head still closed 2/1/20

s

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!

Great for speed in the early AM; by noon it is toddler city

s

Not much by way of elevation, no appreciable mountain biking, otherwise very nice.

East Trail Head Closed

s

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.

Great Urban Trail

s

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

I love it!

s

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

s

nice casual riding

s

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.

Awesome bike trail

s

Nice long trail
