"This hike is representative of many of the new, linear, in-city trails in Houston. They are built along gullies, bayous, and floodplain property. One edge of the trail generally abuts a residential area shielded by fences, but with gates opening to the trail. This encourages hikers from the area to frequently use the trail. Several species of birds, including egrets, may be seen along the gully.
The trail is an 8-foot-wide asphalt multiuse trail. It is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Skaters, cyclists, and joggers also use it, so keep to the right and watch for bikes coming from the rear. There is no drinking water, tree cover, or shade—take water and a hat, and use sunscreen. The hike is best done on shady days."
