This is a great very enjoyable walk/hike/backpack, whatever you are interested in. I have been several different time now with my son and with my wife as well. It is so well maintained and everyone is super friendly and helpful. There is an observation center where you can go inside and someone is usually there to show and let you touch a small baby alligator. There are snakes behind glass observation windows also. Along the trail there is also an old “Homestead House” setup, an old “Blacksmith shop”, old glass front gas pump, an old windmill, and many other old time set ups to look at. There are some Buffalo that you can see and a look out deck where you can watch them. I can’t say enough about this place. It’s so worth the trip. We go at least twice a year.

$4 admission was worth it. You have to go into the visitor center and pay admission in order to access the trail (no skirting around it, haha). There are actually three loops available to run/explore. Garmin GPS tracked them all at 4 miles, but it was weird cuz it nailed the distance correctly when I walked but shortened the distances when I ran. Anywho, it was a great and enjoyable outing.

I had a great time walking all the trails at Armand Bayou Nature Trails. My dad took man pictures of me and my mom.

Well maintained trails that are family friendly. You will see a lot of wildlife...we saw snakes, spiders, and turtles. It's fun to see the bayou with all of the water vegetation too. The trail itself wasn't difficult and was very shady. Overall a great experience.

the Google address is incorrect! it says the trail head is on red coral road but that address takes you to someone's house. It's a nice house, but no bike path. The two trail heads are on Fairmont Parkway and at the Holly Bay park. From the park head to the back of the running track and you'll see the gravel trail. From either trail head just look for paths cut out into the woods and you'll find a pretty nice single track for mountain bikes. Great for practicing skills, some parts get technical but all-together really easy and super fun.

It's great for Houston! A $4 charge for the use of the trails but it's great and interactive. Will be coming back to finish the last of the trails. Great for kids!

I grew up going here and Bay Area...I go hiking here fairly often just to get outside. They've done a lot to improve the's peaceful and a nice break from the day to day. You might see deer, snakes (venomous and non venomous), alligator, turtles, small mammals such a raccoon and opossum, a variety of raptors, insects, etc. If you are solely talking about the trails within the nature advised that biking, running, picnics and pets are prohibited. Nearby Bay Area Park is the place to go if those things are what you're wanting to do.

How do you even get in. Every time I try to run there I can't get past the locked gate?

Not a bad nature trail when looking for something close to home in the Clear Lake area. It beats sitting inside all day when you're looking for a quick escape to nature.

Didn't like it at all

Very nice trail within the city. Trails are mostly flat so they are easy to walk. One trail goes to the water so there is an opportunity for birding. I will be going again.

I grew up right next to this park. It is beautiful and well kept. Great place to just hang with the family and bbq or have a bday party for the kido.

If you want to get away from the feel of the city without actually leaving the city this park has the feel. If you really want some excitement go kayaking on the bayou and look out for those gators!
