I'd advise you only go super early on the weekends because after work and in the main parts of the day the traffic will really interrupt your run along this route -- you have to stop a few times as the trail merges with the main road sidewalk and intersections....
I find parking near the church is a good place to start, and you can run further up the bayou past 610 if you want a longer 6+ mile loop.

Wonderful because there are so many places to stop for water along the way!!
I recommend parking off of Eldridge so that you can tailor the route length to your liking.

Beautiful walk this morning with my 9 mth old dog. Great weather and plenty of room for the cyclists and the hikers.

Good enough to go once, but urban. Most is an asphalt trail. You can hike down by the polluted stream. There is a patch of dirt trails with a few "anthills." Most hills I've seen in Houston, though! This is a good place to run.

Trail is a wide dirt path through the woods. About half way around the loop, the path became very muddy and we turned back. Enjoyed the part that we hiked.
