Nice open areas to picnic and relax. Very dog friendly.
Directions incorrect; actually park at s briar forest and dairy ash ford
Awesome, highly recommend. Medium paced, moderate terrain and really fun
It was fun and challenging going uphill
It was good but watch out for bikers!
It stinks...literally. There is a water treatment facility near the beltway 8 area. The area near Wilcrest is nice though. Better to drive 2 hours to Austin.
I ride it all the time it's the best!
Great trail but not much for mountain bikers. There's a dirt path that runs parallel to the main one which was fun, but I found the trail pretty packed with people and quite easy.
Directions are to a fucked up apartment in China fucking town.
Great trail. East side is much more hilly and shaded than the west. Lots of bikers as this is a paved trail.
Flooded, good trail once dry though
I run this paved path on a regular basis from the Dairy Ashford entrance. When the flood waters get high, it does get muddy, especially the further east you go. If you go west from Dairy Ashford, the elevation stays high enough that you don't have to worry about the water or mud as much. The path doesn't get too packed, though sometimes between bikers, runners, and walkers, this place reminds you that you're in the middle of the city. However, once you get away from the main roads, and especially down by the water (Buffalo Bayou), the road noise dies away enough that you can imagine that you're not in the city anymore. Great walk, but does *not* feel like a "trail".
Flooded, maybe another week or two trails will be clear
Fun trail, just really rooty. Overall great trail
Wonderful because there are so many places to stop for water along the way!!
I recommend parking off of Eldridge so that you can tailor the route length to your liking.
Good enough to go once, but urban. Most is an asphalt trail. You can hike down by the polluted stream. There is a patch of dirt trails with a few "anthills." Most hills I've seen in Houston, though! This is a good place to run.
as far as mountain biking in the houston area goes, this is the top of the list of places i enjoy going to close to home. Super fun jumps too.
