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.

I went here this past weekend after hearing some good things from the locals and I had a blast. I started at Terry Hershey Park off Memorial and N. Eldridge and parked my car right off the Bayou in the Park Parking Lot. Once you cross over the bayou to the south side, you ride some paved or dirt trails to the trailhead that runs along the south side of the river. There's a couple of routes all the way down, and it seemed like the outer most trail was the easiest and the middle and lower sections varied in difficulty. The trails flowed very well and there were some roots and short drop sections, but overall easy to maintain speed and blast all the way to the Beltway. Once there I turned around and hit it back, taking the trail closest to the river all the way back. It was tons of fun and highly recommend to any one looking to get in a good workout and have some fun while doing it.
