Explore the most popular trails in Bear Creek Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Probably a great hike in the summer or drier months but right now it's impassable at points. Hold off until it dries out.

easy run through a mostly wooded area, path is in good condition.

This page is about the dirt equestrian and nature trail in Bear Creek Park's southwest corner, not the paved trails in the developed part of the park. The trail has reopened, but it is in poor shape. No signs, maps, or trail markings. Lots of wet areas with deep cement-like mud even though every other trail I hiked in Houston last week was bone dry. Forest too dense for good bird or wildlife viewing. Nearby roads make for lack of solitude. I would do almost any hike in this area before I did this one again.

Great easy, paved trails large park with few people. Nice for my leisure ride.

Great, easy, paved trail for any fitness level as many places to rest and turn around. Search YouTube for “Uncl3Mik3Mik3 Trail-Away” for video.

A sanctuary hidden from the city. I run with my dog here and she loves being off leash since there aren’t many people or other dogs around.

Good for biking. Good hike distance on foot just be sure to wear good shoes for the pavement.

The trail changed a lot. Lots of trash. Path is different (probably due to flooding). Lots of dead trees. Its worth a look.

If it has been raining do not go here. Prone to flooding. Good shade as you are in a forest most of the time. Not the greatest trail markers, but was fairly easy to follow.

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.

Walked this trail on June 14, 2018. It's about 60% shaded which is much needed in Houston. The trail is asphalt and also used as a bike trail. This was a Thursday so not crowded. I would think on the weekends and holidays it would be well used with cyclists so watch out.

Great little trail if you live in Houston. Almost feels like you are outside the city. Very easy paved pathway. Walking, biking, bird watching. There is an 1800 cemetery, small airport, and park midway between Bear Creek and Cullen. Trailhead is at Hwy 6 and Patterson.

Wet and nasty. Horrible. Slushing through ankle deep mud on the trail. If you go make sure it hasn't rained in at at least a month. Or walk three miles in mud boots. We had a horrible time and went home muddy.

So many bugs

I am Dara. My dad and mom took me to walk the nature trails of Armand Bayou in Pasadena, TX. If you love nature walks, then Armand Bayou trails are for you. All types of birds and wildlife can be seen including alligators. I had so much fun!!!

Great ride. Has a bit of everything. It also breaks off to separate trails that really test your skills. Great scenery. Overall it is a great ride especially with friends.

Great trail for runners, cyclists, roller blading & just strolling... Feels like you are no longer in the city especially with sightings of deer & rabbits etc...

It's a long, paved trail without a lot of road crossings. Good for walking, rollerblading, biking with mt or road tires. It's not super exciting, but it's a nice path, especially for being close by in the city.

Cement path along dirty coulee.

Nice assault trails. Easy enough.

Good if you live close, don't bother traveling here if you are more than 30 minutes out.

Excellent trail to take your little ones and family for a bike ride or hike, peaceful place with plenty of shadow at summer time. Great scenery for the trail that connects the bayou!
