To be completely honest, I couldn’t figure out if I was on the correct trail. The nav here was a bit confusing. I ended up riding the city sidewalks and near the skatepark. Overall it was a great ride. Would recommend more signs showing start of trial.

Paved paths with clean views of Downtown Houston skyline. Site to HPD Memorial in Buffalo Bayou Park. Excellent location for photos! Parking could be better!

This is an awesome running, walking, and bike path! It’s beautifully paved, runs along the bayou, and is a very nice trail to have in the middle of downtown Houston. There are other trails you can fork off onto, or the trail continues on longer than the four miles as well. I ran this yesterday and there were LOTS of wild sunflowers blooming; they were mesmerizingly stunning.

Down and back is more around 2 miles total. The path continues on a long way further so you can customize the distance
