Nice hike where you almost forget you're in the middle of a huge city. Well marked.

This trail is a nice little surprise tucked away just inside the West Loop near Memorial Park. Very quiet and relaxing walk.

This trail is probably the best trail for mountain biking in memorial park in terms of technical difficulty and flow. There are a lot of rooty spots that give you opportunity to practice your maneuvering skills and the trail doesn’t have a lot of tree overgrowth...yet. Hurricane Harvey decimated some of the other trails in memorial Park (looks like a war zone), but this one remains intact and is my go-to spot for the time being

What a gem! It’s a reprieve from the hustle and bustle; right in the middle of Houston!
There are some considerable upgrades in the works for the center, so much of the trail is closed. But once they are done, it’s going to be so fantastic.
Today was my first time there and it was quite wonderful. I have nothing but great words.
Dogs are allowed.
Brought bug spray, but we didn’t need it.

One of my daily warmup, starter trails. This trail is marked here as 3 miles, but my garmin gps tracking equipment consistently logs it in as 2.4 miles. Even when I tracked once with the AllTrails app, it showed 4 miles, out and back, go figure. Pretty straight forward. Quiet for the most part. Not very challenging, so it's a good trail to increase speed on. Very simple elevation drop downs, but a lot of root cover, so, look down often! The trail offers small alternate offshoots, which is nice to mix it up. Pretty obviously user cared for in certain locations, since it looks like the bikers maintain areas that need attention to benefit their experience. This is an out and back trail, but dumps out across the street from the running/walking path on both ends, so doesn't necessarily need to be, to get back to your starting point. As of sept 21, the drop trail down to the bayou is pretty, but overgrown and cut off by flooding, and clay mud that gums the best of boot lugs.

Did this trail for the first time today (mountain bike) and it was pretty awesome! A little more challenging in spots that I had anticipated but my two co-workers and I made it without too much difficulty and no one bit it!
