Memorial Park Trails Professional Review and Guide
"This is all a lot of Houston mountain bikers know. And this is still the quintessential Houston-area mountain bike trail. The older maze of ridiculousness and general foolish riding has become a thing of the past. You will see barricades where bad places have been closed off; hopefully this will result in some healing over the years. This is now a nice park, probably not all beginner, but there are plenty of 95/95 parts. There’s some mid-level stuff to tease you into thinking you’re “da man,” and there are some respectable expert-level assault zones, if you know where to look.
The Purple and Blue trails are not real severe, the Yellow and Orange offer more challenging riding, and the Green and Red are downright expert in places. Memorial Park is a place you can just go do laps of each little bit that appeals to you. Mix in a lap over here, one over there, a loop of this part, a loop of that, ad nauseam. Watch for other trail users; there appears to be no set approach to how riders and hikers use these trails, people seem to just wander. And I mean you are right in the belly of the beast here. This is Houston—you are a bike toss from downtown and some of the major monster freeway interchanges."
