There is also a single track mountain biking route on the south bank of the river called the Anthills Trail. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved asphalt and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5%) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse the trail.

First to Review

About as good as you’re going to get in a major city for a hike/bike trail. Pros: paved - quiet - length of trail - runs by river/creek - mostly shaded - occasional water fountains Cons: paved - you share with bikers, many who think they’re on the Tour de France Great place to get some quiet and exercise in Houston.
