Sunday brisk walk and the start of a fresh new year. Super easy trail. No need for hiking boots, running shoes are better for this trail. There are a lot of bikers on this trail. So be prepared to move “on you left”.

Quite nice walk, I loves high pine trees all around. The hike is paved which was really good today after heavy rains (everything else was flooded). There is plenty of playgrounds along the trail so our kids had several rewards. Also plenty of spaces for having picnic or BBQ.

Portions of the arboretum are currently under construction, but many of the trails are accessible and make for a beautiful and easy walk/hike in nature.

Great for kids, shady and well maintained.

I love this trail. You depend a lot on the weather though. The scenery is beautiful and the trails are in very good shape.

This in my opinion is the best trail in the Houston area!

Awesome 11mile Long Run on this trail, felt great.

The trail is not ideal for road biking as there is a lot of gravel, grass and pine needles on the trail. It is also pretty uneven and bumpy. Even the roads in the park are not ideal for road biking. I ended up riding in circles on the few roads that were decent for about 20 miles, but won’t be back with my road bike. It would have been good for a mountain bike or running.

Beautiful bridges and lovely nature ! Trail is well paved too

Nice shaded trail even in the Houston summer heat, I was able to stay cool.

I truly felt the burn on this perimeter! I like it.

Great little trail for a quick walk or run. Despite being in the middle of residential and offices, for the most part it feels rural and isolated.
Caution: if your desire is only 2.4 miles, keep track of your position on the map. This loop is part of a much larger trail system and in several places what appears to be the continuation is actually not part of this loop. There is even a short single track dirt interconnect under a road to stay in this loop.
Worth it. Enjoy!

It was very good even though it’s summer & it was a bit hot

we enjoy family "hikes" here a few times per year. great for young kids.

husband and i enjoy it for a nice walk with our fur babies.

Nice walking trail and also good for people to ride bikes through park.

I hiked around the trails with a hydration pack and some snacks and hiking essentials. They were beautiful! Full of life and nature! The trees provide shade even in 98 degree weather, it was cool. I even brought along a fan/mister and didn't event need to use it! In the shade it felt like 75-80 degrees. Around 4 pm- 7 pm, it was pretty much empty. It was super easy! Would def do again! They're still working on phase 2 of the woodway entrance but mostly all the trails open

it really does feel like you're in the woods. lots of winding trails. great for birdwatching. be sure to wear mosquito repellent during morning and evening. my dogs enjoy it too.

Nice walk, good fresh air

in the houston arboretum, there are seperate trails (such as coyote trail) and the trees provide just enough cover where the sun filters through perfectly. this is also a great place to take some nature pictures. it is one of my favorite places in houston!!!

this trail is great for running. there are slight hills and perfect gravel for running. when it starts to rain, everything cools down and the trees partially protect you. i personally like the marvin taylor trails. 5 stars!!!

It's a good n long trail, my wife n I haven't been cycling for years now but we enjoyed this trail

Spring hike where there is not a lot to see. The flowers are not blooming and there still is a lot of water standing in the ditches. They are in the middle of revitalizing the area so entrance has moved and the outer loop is not complete. Enter off of West Loop feeder road with new parking area. Much more parking now.

Very nice park and trail system

Flat and paved, good trail for long runs! Lots of bikes, but all were very courteous!

The monument is cool.

Nice place to walk the dog on a Sunday in January. A lot of downed trees, might be leftover from Harvey. Some of the trails are boardwalk, which was kinda slippery because it had rained the day before. Probably much prettier in the spring/summer.

under construction. very busy on MLK day.

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.
