Several small loops each just over a mile including one with sand which is a bit tricky.

It was a really cute trail, a bit muddy but fun. It was definitely easy and short enough that next time I would bring the kids. You're also going to want to bring bug spray.

a fun quick trail, lots of sand in on the northern loop due to flooding. Will make it a bit more difficult for bikes.

I love this trail because it's close and there are a couple different loops to increase difficulty. Main trail is easy enough to take my 7yr old son on, but still has a few hills and bunny hops

Great little area right off the Katy Trail! Little creek at the beginning is a fun place for kids to explore without getting into much mischief.

Enjoy riding the island but 2 out of 3 times we have, we encountered creepy people at the bench. I guess it's a good place for transients. Be cautious.

A walk through some people's back yards. I took my family on one of the warm 70 degree days we had in February, so I was a little disappointed.

Probably a nice feature for kids who live in the area, but I wouldn't drive to this one as a hiking destination.

I have used this trail several times. connects up to the Katy, just south of the casinos. Walked it about 4 years ago in Feb when the river was low and it was warm. Walked out into the middle of the river on a sandbar, which was neat in itself. Nice area to escape the suburban life while being close to home.

A mostly level trail that holds water well. A nice walk in the woods with river views and highway noise used often by bicyclists.
