South Belt Hike & Bike Trail is a recreation path in the South Belt/ Ellington neighborhood of Houston. The trail measures 3.75 miles one way, and includes a 1.25-mile loop at one end. The official trailhead is located on the west end of the trail, at Blackhawk Road and features parking as well outdoor fitness stations. The trail heads south and east, sitting on the edge on a drainage canal that runs between rows of suburban homes. The trail intersects with the streets at different points but there are marked crosswalks at each point. The asphalt trail also manages to connect to three parks: Bishops Park and Clear Brook City Park, which are both managed by the Clear Brook City MUD; and Dixie Farm Road Park at the east end of the trail. All three parks have parking and their own walking paths which connect to the South Belt Trail. At Dixie Farm Road Park, the South Belt Trail loops around a detention pond. Benches are provided along the trail's route and there are additional seating and picnic areas in the parks.
Parking options include the official trailhead (10777 Blackhawk Blvd, Houston), Clear Brook City Park (911 Blackhawk Blvd, Houston) and Dixie Farm Road Park (Blackhawk Blvd. and Dixie Farm Rd.)
