in the houston arboretum, there are seperate trails (such as coyote trail) and the trees provide just enough cover where the sun filters through perfectly. this is also a great place to take some nature pictures. it is one of my favorite places in houston!!!

my cross country team and i were running on this for a recovery run. the hills provide an excellent challenge and the different types of plants and animals keep it beautiful and interesting. it is great for PT and all levels. 5 stars!!!

my dad and i were biking part of this trail. i slowed down to stop, because i wasnt a very advanced mountain biker (one of my wheels got caught on a tree root.) as i was about get back on i saw rustling in the bushes. then, a fairly large coral snake (and i am absolutely sure it wasnt a king snake) slithered out. i told my dad to not go over and poke it because, as some of you guys may know, coral snakes are extremely venemous. this is why i may hesitate to allow younger children or off leash dogs to go on this trail. otherwise, 5 stars!!!

Spring hike where there is not a lot to see. The flowers are not blooming and there still is a lot of water standing in the ditches. They are in the middle of revitalizing the area so entrance has moved and the outer loop is not complete. Enter off of West Loop feeder road with new parking area. Much more parking now.

Rerating this trail... Not completely easy as there are some sections that have been eroded to make it hard for a "easy" walker to navigate. Sections of this should be upgraded to moderate, but combine this with blue trail and it is a great workout.

Definitely a moderate trail, there are some super tricky sections if you are a newbie or have trouble climbing or stepping up/down. But it is a decent workout. Mountain bikers use the trails, so keep your ears open. They don't slow down for us walkers.

Great hike; we did a combination of the trails since the Purple Trail was washed out in one area. There were hills enough to make the hike a little more challenging than most around Houston.
We were there on a Saturday, and there was heavy traffic with mountain bikers and unleashed dogs. In a few places there is not a lot of room to move out of the way for them, (and some do not slow down at all) so I would hesitate to bring small children. It might be better during the week, but we haven't tried it yet.

Attempted to start off of the purple trail, but got to a section that seemed impassible for EASY. Looks like hurricane may have washed part away. You would basically have to climb down into a ditch and climb back out. As someone just starting to hike and being alone, I was not able to make the LEAP into the ditch, nor climb out. I turned around and hiked purple/orange instead.

Had to have gotten lost somewhere... I was walking the purple trail and I got to an VERY impassible part. Looked like it was washed out from the hurricane. It stopped where the orange trail makes a loop backward. I could not find any other way to get around the purple trail. I decided to take the orange trail back around. So my hike was a combo of purple and orange. Orange is much more moderate trail than the simple purple, but was still fairly easy.
With going half way around the purple and taking orange back, it made the official journey 2.7 miles per my GPS on the alltrails recording.

This trail head was nonexistent.

This is a very fun trail. With ups and downs at 3 to 5 feet, it was just our speed. It was not to wet. We loved it. Perfect trail, we will be back.

This was a horrible trail. Water was covering part of the trail. It would have come up to our knees. It was a big muddy mess. With 10 to 15 foot ups and downs. It was also very steep.

Lots of fun with all the ups and downs. Great trail. It's a little tricky but just our speed. Lots of bikes and dogs. Otherwise we love it.

Nice loop with a wide path, easy.

Nice place to walk the dog on a Sunday in January. A lot of downed trees, might be leftover from Harvey. Some of the trails are boardwalk, which was kinda slippery because it had rained the day before. Probably much prettier in the spring/summer.

under construction. very busy on MLK day.

An excellent trail system that is very well maintained, and serene. Beautiful trees and lots of birds, rabbits and squirrels. A word of caution for all mountain bikers; be on high alert for joggers, distracted pedestrians, and dogs that are not attached with a leash. They will run right in front of you, or pop out around blind corners, so approach corners and banks with caution. While I was biking here, bikers were flying around corners and trail systems, which is ill-advised and is a recipe for disaster. You will have an awesome time here, just be cautious and respectful.

Very technical and a good challenge if you thing Green is getting comfortable.

Really great place to walk with the kids.

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

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.

Great trail, at least the parts that were open. Part of the trail was closed due to construction. The portion that was open was great though.

My girlfriend and I have been wanting to get into trail walking so I got lucky finding this app. Once I downloaded it I found the nearest hard difficulty trail and we ended up having a blast. It was just what we were wanting.

All I can say is wish it was longer

It's a bit short but a good warm up til you get to the more difficult trails.

Easy, scenic, can't really go wrong with that

I love all the trails out at memorial park. This one is nice to jump on when you're tired from the more hilly routes.

Easy walk
