Running behind the University of Houston to Hermann Park and beyond is the Brays Bayou Trail. Here you can find walkers, joggers and bikers!
This is a nice, well-paved, nature walk. After a lot of rain, the bayou roars... but on most days the water is low and finding turtle or snake bones for the Houston Zoo Swap shop is not uncommon.
If you want an easy nature walk or great backdrop for a picture, check out Brays Bayou!
