This long hike takes you from a neighborhood park into a reservoir teeming with wildlife. Because it is part of Barker Reservoir, which was created in the 1940s to control flooding, parts of the trail are extremely low and may flood after heavy rains. The Army Corps of Engineers impounds water when necessary in George Bush Park. The George Bush Park trails connect to the trails in Terry Hershey Park near TX 6, allowing you to hike from Fry Road to Beltway 8 on fully paved and traffic-free trails.
