Checked out this shorter trail of the Dwight D Eisenhower Park today, four months after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the flooding of San Jacinto River. We found it in good condition to walk through and dry. You can clearly see the debris line in the tree branches even all the months after. I regret not thinking to bring gloves and a bag to remove light trash as we walked the loop.
A good part of this trail is on the road back to the parking and picnic area.
