  • The best place to visit with your companions and family. Very best to spend weekends. Since its more like walking thru rainforest in houston, I would suggest to try all the trails available inside. And Inner trails are much better because you can see more animals and species inside than the outer trail. Take a map from there guiding centre..
  • Small, personal and manageable nature preserve. Trails are easily walkable for all ages and interests. Take your out of town guest for a walk around.
  • Nice outreach for children & nature enthusiasts. The trails are a nice length for being in the city. I liked that even though their parking lot indicated many people were there, I hardly ran into anybody on the trails -- I found it quiet and relaxing
  • Nice park to take a hike with yo boo-thang or your fam, Or maybe even your pooch-thang. Nice spot for pokego.
  • Relaxing trails that help you escape the hustle of the city. A great place to get lost and find new adventures. Lush greenery around ponds and trees and overlooking the bayou and hillsides... Near the Bermuda Triangle. The only trail in Houston that top this may be the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which is one of the Top 10 Trails in the world.
