Sandy and hilly and the signs weren't label well. but it was a fun route.

Great trail that I’ve done several times with my dogs. It can get a little busy on weekends. Good running path for someone wanting to mix it up and feel immersed in nature... well as much as you can in a city like Houston. It seems most of the paths have been repaired since Harvey damage.

Nice gravel trails. Fun for kids, lots of butterflies!

Easy trail. Mix of paved path, gravel and boardwalk. Many trails within the Park, all very well marked. You will see a variety of trees and shrubs, animals, birds and butterflies. Avoid the trails during mid-day to early evening in summer as it can be really hot and humid. Bring insect repellent.

My husband and I have walked this trail a few times. There is not enough markers and it is easy to get lost and on a different trail. We have never seemed to be able to make it back to where we started.

155 acre park showcasing 4 indigenous ecosystems (prairie, savanna, woodland, wetland) thru 5 miles of trails. Colorful wildflowers on the prairies and cooling canopies on the creekside woodlands. Plenty of boardwalks, benches, and bridges. The Nature Center offers interactive activities. Two access points: from Memorial Dr. or I-610 to 4501 Woodway Dr, Houston, TX 77024.

the amount of flowers here we're unbelievable, this park is absolutely gorgeous! trails are easy, I had a little bit of a hard time following the map to the trails though everything is looped together so I wasnt worried about losing my way

Nice trail right in the middle of the city!

Beautiful gem! Nice getaway. The ravine trail is great and see the possibilities as the foliage grows in. Great trail hike if added to the outer trail.

Beautiful place. Busy but beautiful. The flowers are just lovely. A sensory garden that is precious. You gotta hang out here and just wonder around for a couple of hours.

Abundant wildflowers in the spring. True raw nature trail. Must be conscious of mountain bikers. Tunnels after a rain may be flooded and impassable but crossover Memorial Dr. to bypass. Didn't feel shorted by 1.8 mile trail. Moderate rating seems accurate.

The rebuilt Ravine Trail opened this morning and it is beautiful! It’s also a great little workout with some dips and climbs up and down through the ravine. Love it!

A nice easy walk to get a bit of a nature fix in the city!

I have come to love this trail by my house. I haven’t been in years and recently rediscovered it. Under construction for the first few hikes but still a great outdoor experience. So many beautiful sightings along the trails. Turtles sunbathing, birds, wildflowers and best thing is I can take my furry best friend. I will continue to go and support the Arboretum as it’s nice and peaceful out there. Seems like we are not in the city...I love that.

Great easy trails within the city of Houston. While it is “easy”, many of the smaller, inner trails are covered in mulch which provides a fairly decent workout on the legs. One of my favorite places for some exercise in nature near my house.

This is a good trail if you’re really looking for a hike as opposed to just a walk. Good elevations provide a work out. It is in the woods so obviously if Houston has been experiencing a wet spell, the downside of those elevations can be a problem as well as the underpasses that go under Memorial and Woodway. To Amy who complained about this, maybe you should stick with the paved jogging trails. Not sure what you expected from a hike in the woods after a week of rain.

Red trail is a rugged watch your step trail. A bit washed out in places but definite signs of rebuilding taking place. Would not rate as “easy”. However, it is a good quiet Sunday morning symphony of birds walk...

Take a walk. Clear your mind. Trail improvements in final phases. Appreciate. The arboretum has given a beautiful nod to the integrity of nature in the city...

A beautiful place with clean restrooms. Easy walk but you will need bug spray during the warm months.

Great trail right in the heart of Houston. A good reminder that even though Houston isn’t the prime destination for hiking, there are a lot of great little gems right in our backyard. Easy hike and great one to bring a dog along with.

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.
