Buffalo Bayou: Sabine to Waugh Professional Review and Guide
"Explore 2 miles on the north side of Buffalo Bayou, just west of downtown Houston. Good views of the downtown skyline are available. There is much greenspace, and the edges of the bayou have a wide variety of tree species. Reach the Waugh Drive bridge, home to 250,000 Mexican free-tailed bats. They’re quite a sight as they leave their roost en masse around dusk.
Start the hike from city parking lot H. Follow the connector path at the south-east corner to the T and take the right (west) branch. The trail is wheelchair Sand stroller accessible. This is a multiuse trail, so stay to the right and watch for mountain bikers, cyclists, and joggers. There are benches along the trail. The tree canopy is intermittent, but furnishes some shade. Take a hat, sunscreen, and water."
