Sunday brisk walk and the start of a fresh new year. Super easy trail. No need for hiking boots, running shoes are better for this trail. There are a lot of bikers on this trail. So be prepared to move “on you left”.

Very nice trails

My daughter, 4 year old grandson and I walked this trail after a rain so there were plenty of puddles and mud. However, we managed to go around most muddy spots without issue. I needed a true nature trail that wasn’t paved and this filled the bill! It’s a mostly easy trail with a few ups and downs and some bumpy rooty areas.

Harvey made this a little more like intermediate. Beautiful with nice view of bayou midway.

Trails were flooded, best not to go after a heavy rainy day

Nice place. Very close to home.

Great 3 mile loop

Love this trail! One of the reasons we chose our house is for easy access to the beginning of this trail. It's always been a nice easy, long walk. Perfect for the bike, and bike trailer for the kids. Always a good bit of wildlife too. Birds, rabbits, pigs, deer, snakes, alligator, and even coyote. I've lived in the area for ten years and was a little upset when they ripped all of the blackberry bushes out, but the expansion of the trail is much better! Five stars from me because I have children, and sometimes the long difficult trails are not an option.

pretty creekside loop with bridges and nice trees. fine for leashed dogs. we went to the pc trailhead took dogwood and eventually did the pc loop. onky thing you may not like is that it got muddy and swampy after the rains. easy hike. cabins and campsites too.

It's Houston so rule out hiking....but as far as trails go, this is one of the better loops in the city. Great views of downtown, skate park (with food trucks), dog park, volleyball courts, and even a fancy brunch restaurant - so it should appeal to just about everyone :)

Portions of the arboretum are currently under construction, but many of the trails are accessible and make for a beautiful and easy walk/hike in nature.

My children and I enjoyed the walk, with views of the skyscrapers which we joked about being our urban mountains. Great number of herons and egrets, fun people watching, dog park, graffiti, sculptures, trees to climb, and an amazing skatepark. Thoughtfully planned areas for families.

Great for kids, shady and well maintained.

Very poorly kept, muddy trail. Not even really a trail at the start. We turned around about 100 yards in.

Nice trail, easy to do with kids, and if you really pay attention you can spot many different birds

So great and safe so close to the heart of the city

Great trail for a long walk or bike ride.

Nice paved path. Passes a small cemetery and crosses over to another park. Lots of playgrounds and restrooms. Not all restrooms are open. We parked at Cullen Park. Great path but boring. Tricky to navigate, wish I had this app working at the time. Once you find the trail you won’t get lost.

Fun for getting some easy biking in

Very challenging for me as a beginner. Lots of elevation changes, tree roots some mud. Beautiful wooded area.

I love this trail. You depend a lot on the weather though. The scenery is beautiful and the trails are in very good shape.

Every time I come to Houston, I have to get a long run in here. Great atmosphere with lots of trees and views of the water. It is a favorite for joggers especially at night, given the hot Houston days. Night runs are safer on the western and central portions of the trail.

This in my opinion is the best trail in the Houston area!

Great trail. Diverse scenery. Easy running paths. Take some lights with you in morning or evening run as there is a decent amount of traffic on portion by road.

Go to the end, see a nice pier in the bay.

Mosquito spray of course. Bring water.

Nice walk with dog with plenty of access to Caney creek for dog to cool down. Take several bottles of water and bug spray for the chiggers.

Great trail for cycling and walking. Beautiful scenery. One of our favorite trails to ride.
