Now that it's not boiling hot in Houston, we're getting back out to the urban trails! Most recently we went to the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center!
Right now the Arboretum is restoring the land on the northern portion, but there is still plenty of space open to hike and play... including in the nature playground!
After we played we took off on the trails. There is an inner loop and and outer loop... with trails like spokes connecting them. It's kind of like a wagon wheel... except it's not round and wouldn't roll! See the map HERE.
To make the hike a little extra fun, we found some trees to cross a dry creek bed. (If you want a harder trail, where you have to climb over roots and ridges, try the Memorial Park trail next door.)
The Arboretum is free to visit and there is a free parking lot. On busy days, the parking lot will be full and you have to park at Memorial Park and walk over.
It was a great, cool, afternoon! Check out the pictures!
