Easy path and great walking experience

Very good trail. Wooden bridges needed repairs on the road boards. Beautiful marsh views with lots of birds.

This is not a well marked trail. Even the maps they hand out are confusing for first time trail comers.

Nice trail for middle of Houston, part of trail is a dirt road for service vehicles. Better than walking the sidewalks

Bike lane cycling on smooth roads. Minimal trees, open land, high traffic, many PokeStops (if you play Pokemon Go) and many restrooms available.

Great trails, recently repaved. Can take a shorter route to stay on trails and avoid walking on the roads

Very peaceful hiking

I liked the distance. Nice rest stops and bike trail.

GREAT PARK, don’t know who on earth would dislike it! VERY SCENIC and very kid and family friendly! You will love it ESPECIALLY if you aren’t from Houston! (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Wide, well-marked, flat and easy loop trail around the arboretum area. Passes through numerous habitats including forest, prairie, savanna, and bayou. You have to pay to park unless you come on a Thursday, when parking is free. Very popular due to location, and highway noise from nearby I-610 is ever-present. Overall, a nice suburban hike.

Down and back is more around 2 miles total. The path continues on a long way further so you can customize the distance

We went for a 10 mile loop that was ok. Part of the “trail” was really rough, lots of sticks and trees to walk over. Then we went thru a neighborhood with lots of off leash dogs! The park was really nice though, very busy with lots of families.

Comprised of multiple trails of varying lengths, with many trails in heavily wooded, shaded areas. The half mile loop around a ravine (the Ravine trail, duh) was especially scenic and had some up and down hill slopes to it. There is traffic noise in places but I soon tuned it out as white noise. A nice hidden gem considering it is only a few miles from downtown. I logged four miles by hiking different trails, including the Ravine Loop twice.

Very relaxing and shaded

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.

Decent trail, not marked really but pretty easy to follow. Trash galore though, lots of beer cans and water bottles strewn about. Public parks aren’t public trash cans, I really wish the people who toss their trash on the sides of the trail would think a bit deeper about how careless it is to do so.

Ok, but a ton of roots so it was hard to find flow. Some jump trails, though, so that was fun. Enter by Dairy Ashford. I parked at memorial and it took a while to get to the open trails.

Nice easy walk on gravel path mostly shaded by tree canopy. Climb the observatory towers for good views of the pond otherwise, the grasses are too high to see the water.
