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...

There were some difficult ups and downs. But, me and my granddaughter are getting good at it. We entered the trail from behind the soccer field. Start of the trail is not where it says it is.

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.

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.

A little short but very easy to get to "in the city" Would recommend but probably won't go back.

Super good trail to satisfy our want to hike without anything difficult. It was beautiful and in the woods but short and easy. And easy to get to.

Easy hike through wooded area so you feel like you're out of the city. It gets a little harder a little further back on the trails. I love this park!

Walked part of the trails. Like the workout station with outdoor equipment to get in a total body workout. Lots of people on the trails. We walked only a few miles and back. Plan to visit this trail on my next visit to Houston.

I love these trails. However, my running partner almost stepped on a coral snake during our last run so please be careful!

Trail was fun but the current storms have left it difficult to ride. Hope they fix it soon. But it was a joke rather than an adventure

There's a variation of trails that range from easy to hard. I have tried all colors and they're all very pleasant to experience. There's a lot of people in bikes, so you have to be able to communicate with them whenever you hear one close by, because the trails can be very narrow, so you'll have to move out of the way for them to pass. Also, make sure you don't go on a day after a storm/rain because you'll have to make some detours on some trails. Other than that I really recomend the orange trail, which is ranked the most difficult; but personally I like the sight seeing, dips, and bridges along the way.

My husband and I took the most "difficult" trail available in February, though in most state/national parks, these would be moderate/intermediate. We were pleased to see a lot of local flora and fauna. Unlike some of the other great walks in Houston, this one is actually unpaved, which I loved. On the negative side, you can always hear roadnoise, and part of the trail involved us walking under loud power lines and next to a railway. I'd go back again just to explore more of the little offshoots from the bigger trails. Bikers do not seem to care about the signs that say "no bikes" on trails that are clearly for people on foot.
