George Bush Park: Barker to Bayou Bridge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail is located in 7,800-acre George Bush Park, part of the 13,500-acre Barker Reservoir. It is the largest park in Harris County and the sixth-largest city park in the nation. This area was part of the original Stephen F. Austin Colony. Wildlife, including shorebirds, can be seen around the bridge over the bayou.
Start at the trailhead at the entrance gate on the north side
of the parking lot. The trail is asphalt, 10 feet wide, and
wheelchair and stroller accessible. This trail has little canopy cover, so be sure to take water, a hat, and sunscreen. The closest potable water is at the sports center, about 2 miles north. The American Shooting Center is adjacent to the
trail, on the right (east) side."
