The Houston Arboretum trails are Beautiful but I'd like to explore more fully next time, and on a bike. This is maybe my favorite area in Houston.

My husband and I took the most "difficult" trail available in February, though in most state/national parks, these would be moderate/intermediate. We were pleased to see a lot of local flora and fauna. Unlike some of the other great walks in Houston, this one is actually unpaved, which I loved. On the negative side, you can always hear roadnoise, and part of the trail involved us walking under loud power lines and next to a railway. I'd go back again just to explore more of the little offshoots from the bigger trails. Bikers do not seem to care about the signs that say "no bikes" on trails that are clearly for people on foot.

I run this paved path on a regular basis from the Dairy Ashford entrance. When the flood waters get high, it does get muddy, especially the further east you go. If you go west from Dairy Ashford, the elevation stays high enough that you don't have to worry about the water or mud as much. The path doesn't get too packed, though sometimes between bikers, runners, and walkers, this place reminds you that you're in the middle of the city. However, once you get away from the main roads, and especially down by the water (Buffalo Bayou), the road noise dies away enough that you can imagine that you're not in the city anymore. Great walk, but does *not* feel like a "trail".
