Explore the most popular Wildlife trails near Houston with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Bikes are not allowed on the trails. Stop riding your bikes on the trails. The trail that leads to the Lilly pond and primitive loop was blocked off. I don’t know if it’s closed for repairs or if it was never opened. I like the Hickory Bog loop. Very peaceful and beautiful.

Easy path and great walking experience

Probably a great hike in the summer or drier months but right now it's impassable at points. Hold off until it dries out.

Great natural park to explore! With bogs, turtles, squirrels, even saw a deer. Also some good geocaches if you’re into that.

Fun pretty run with my 14 year old

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

My first thought was I wasn’t sure where to park. It was a Saturday so I parked in the elementary school parking lot. When I got back people had parked on the road next to the gigantic house (you’ll know the one). I cut from the sidewalk up to the top of the levee and walked along the gravel path. The overlook of the reservoir was nice. In the morning, it wasn’t too crowded and I let my lab walk off leash. There aren’t any benches, water fountains, or shade spots. Which is fine, as long as you know what to expect.

Great hike with the dog. Wide and traveled for much of the trail. Trail marker down at south east corner. Go west or north to stay on purple!

Great trail if you want to do something a bit longer and a little mor challenging. Some of the red trail on the way back seemed over grown with weeds, so I went around it. Overall enjoyed it

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.
