under construction. very busy on MLK day.

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.

An excellent trail system that is very well maintained, and serene. Beautiful trees and lots of birds, rabbits and squirrels. A word of caution for all mountain bikers; be on high alert for joggers, distracted pedestrians, and dogs that are not attached with a leash. They will run right in front of you, or pop out around blind corners, so approach corners and banks with caution. While I was biking here, bikers were flying around corners and trail systems, which is ill-advised and is a recipe for disaster. You will have an awesome time here, just be cautious and respectful.

Very technical and a good challenge if you thing Green is getting comfortable.

Great easy trail in the city. Lots of birds and other wildlife. In our years using this trail we have see coyote, squirrel, snakes, great horned owl, screech owl, woodpeckers, raccoon, opossum...look for dew berries in the spring.

One if the better places to go in Houston.

very nice place to ride

Nice hike where you almost forget you're in the middle of a huge city. Well marked.

Harvey has destroyed the 3.2 mile trail. Very muddy

This trail is a nice little surprise tucked away just inside the West Loop near Memorial Park. Very quiet and relaxing walk.

Simple trails. More of a stroll than a hike, but we enjoy it for walks on nice days and getting out with the dog.

This trail is probably the best trail for mountain biking in memorial park in terms of technical difficulty and flow. There are a lot of rooty spots that give you opportunity to practice your maneuvering skills and the trail doesn’t have a lot of tree overgrowth...yet. Hurricane Harvey decimated some of the other trails in memorial Park (looks like a war zone), but this one remains intact and is my go-to spot for the time being

This trail is across from an active target shooting range.

I was not impressed for the first 15 minutes of my walk; (asphalt trail under the open Sun with no shade.)

But the trail eventually reached a pleasant "nature area" with nice shade.

I will come back again.

trail system is pretty much all paved with a few short dirt trails (all less than 1/4 mile). Not sure how they got a 7.7 mile trail system. The trail map shown is only about 2.25 mi, but the trails extend outside the park and you can get additional miles. Park and trails are well maintained tho. it is clean & not heavily trafficked. A wheel chaired person could make it every where on the trails

What a gem! It’s a reprieve from the hustle and bustle; right in the middle of Houston!
There are some considerable upgrades in the works for the center, so much of the trail is closed. But once they are done, it’s going to be so fantastic.
Today was my first time there and it was quite wonderful. I have nothing but great words.
Dogs are allowed.
Brought bug spray, but we didn’t need it.
