Sometimes you just need to stretch all six of your legs, and this trail in 7800-acre George Bush Park is the place to do it. It is wide, straight, and flat with no roots, uneven patches, twists, or turns, so you can set a brisk pace, or bring a friend and have a nice, long conversation. Heck, you can even bring a friend in a wheelchair on this route. But don’t come on a summer afternoon; there’s precious little shade. There is also a shooting range nearby, and the sound follows you almost the entire hike—one way to find out if your dog is gun-shy.
