My hubby and I enjoyed how this trail seemed so far from everything and offered actual hiking. Beautiful trail!

Flat and Sandy but with plenty of fun features

Been riding these trails for like 30 years. Something for everyone. Can’t get lost...

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 really like this trail!

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

I used to walk this trail when my kids were really little. Double jogger and two working dogs in tow, once you committed you were in it for the long haul. Yesterday was the first time I’ve taken to the trail in about 7-8 years. I loved it! All the work that has been done to the park is awesome. The lighting, cameras, bridges, extra parking, all makes it even better than it was before. Can’t wait to return again soon!

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

Super nice bike trail. Lots of cool down areas.

This was our first time out there. We got a little off the beaten path, but that was the fun part. It was still a little slippery, we had a great time out there, but will let it dry a bit more before tackeling it again.

Great trails, not very trafficked, be ready for some wet/muddy spots if recently rained.

Great place to run in Houston area. We ran the purple and yellow trails and enjoyed them both (very similar). Fewer people on these trails than the paved trails out along the road. So many on the paved trail Saturday morning we wondered if there was an organized event going on:). Mid June at 8 am was humid and warm, but a steady breeze helped. Trails are wet in some areas, depending on recent rain.

Walked this trail on June 14, 2018. It's about 60% shaded which is much needed in Houston. The trail is asphalt and also used as a bike trail. This was a Thursday so not crowded. I would think on the weekends and holidays it would be well used with cyclists so watch out.

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

I hiked all of the trails. Started around 10 ish, took me a while to adjust to the map and the markers since I'm relatively new to this. The trail are moderate as it says except for the purple trail. The purple trail is easier but less shadier. I wore a cap, white long sleeves, face shield, camel Bak with essentials inside as well as sunblock. Bugs weren't a huge problem even though I had bug repellent on. Everyone who passed me by wore shorts and a tank top pretty much, but I like to avoid getting cancer and to be safe rather than sorry in this 100 degree weather. Although the entire experience is scenic in itself, there aren't really any flowers during this time unless you west of the map where the purple trail leads there are some wild flowers and sunflowers that'll lead you to the running trail center. There will be mountain bikers and if you hear some yelling, usually something on the lines of "biker, rider, some mumble jumble from a distance" etc, then you just move aside andet them pass. If you plan on doing a similar hike like mine I'd carry a hydration back pack with some snacks. Great trail! Oh yeah the trails are pretty dry now being that it's summer.

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

great trail! well maintained. just watch out for speeding bike riding!

Terry Hershey has a long paved hike & bike trail. The anthills are actually the unpaved portions down lower next to the river I believe. It is a nice but heavily trafficked trail inside of Houston.

Great little trail if you live in Houston. Almost feels like you are outside the city. Very easy paved pathway. Walking, biking, bird watching. There is an 1800 cemetery, small airport, and park midway between Bear Creek and Cullen. Trailhead is at Hwy 6 and Patterson.

Perfect spots to picnic, cool off near fountains when hot, and hills enough to feel like you’ve accomplished something cardio intensive and a little challenging by the time you are finished :)

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.

It's a little convoluted to get to the trail, but once you are there... WOW. As a hiker, this trail gives you great exercise and training for harder trail. As it is used a lot of mountain biking, the hills are steep. Besides making the triangle, add the Hogg Loop (flat terrain) to relax and grab miles before making the triangle again to go back. Awesome work-out. I will definitely go back here. But if it rains, your can not go under Memorial Drive (Twice) in order to get to the trail. Mud will keep you out.

Great trail! The 3 stars are for how terrible the security is. Our car window was broken into at the parking lot to steal a bag (that didn’t have anything in it by the way) because we knew that cars got broken into all the time.

Great track, beautiful nature and divers.

Love this trail for a hike with my fur baby. However, the AllTrails map is a little off. If you follow AllTrails map, you actually pick up some of the orange, red, and blue trails near the end. If you follow the park’s markers for the purple trail, the trail is about 1.5 miles. There are some good hills along this trail so a pretty good workout.

Awesome. I walked it on my lunch break. Very pretty.
