Decent trail. Not amazing scenery but good for a workout near home or in the city.

Excellent trail to take your little ones and family for a bike ride or hike, peaceful place with plenty of shadow at summer time. Great scenery for the trail that connects the bayou!

Enjoyed this trail immensely! Though you had to be focused it was not too intense and flowed very well. Took my 22 y/o son and he also enjoyed it here as well. This trail was so good I plan on coming regularly and get more acquainted with it. I would definitely recommend this trail.

Braes bayou is a great place for a long trek - walk, run, bike, whatever you're in to. Yes, there's a lot of cement, but in you're in the middle of a huge metropolis and this is not a park. (Get over it!) There is wildlife: fish jump out of the water, birds fly, dragonflies hover - again, you're in a city! Perhaps the best chance for a wildlife "experience" is to be on the bayou at dusk. You're likely to see many bats flying around for their dinner!

Run these trails 3x per week. I enjoy them for running more than biking. There are stretches that are fun on the bike, but some f
lat unshaded track as well. Recent rain has carved the trails and there are plenty of exposed roots. Looks like the trails we're recently cleaned and some high brush has been cleared. Overall the trail is in good shape. I've seen Copperhead on two occasions this summer. Make sure to be on your toes!

Have been hiking and biking in the park. It's 7800 acres so lots of areas to explore. Try off trail hiking and you will be surprised. Have spent many hours in the park on and off the trails. Highly recommend.

I've been running these trails for about 7 years now and have seen my fair share of local wild life, this morning I was running with my dog bubba like I do every morning and we saw a CORAL snake. Wasn't very big and luckily grabbed bubba before he got to close. Few weeks ago I also saw a cottonmouth, even though yes these bike trails for awesome please watch where your walking and your surroundings :) . I have notified park rangers to post some warnings :)

Love memorial park and this will not keep me away!

Bear Creek Pioneers Park: Equestrian and Nature Trail

This is not a trail. It is a flat, black top road. It's ok if you want to bike or just want to get in a quick run, but there isn't much to see. I did take a side trail but it was so grown up and the Mosquitos nearly carried me off. It is green and lush, but that's about it. Bring lots up bug spray! Not a trail to hike.
