I thought we had checked Buffalo Bayou off the to-do list with Buffalo Bayou Park... but it is really really long... and there are so many trails along it.
A few weeks ago we hiked the Memorial Park Blue Trail... and we LOVED it. Unlike the wide jogging trail along Memorial Drive, this one follows Buffalo Bayou and goes up and down, through trees and over water on log bridges.
So we headed back to try the Memorial Park Green Ridge Trail. (See the map below.)
We had to tip-toe around several spots, but it was still easy enough for an adventurous 5, 7 and 9 year old... and I could do it with a baby on my chest. (But a stroller would be tricky here, even without the mud!)
Like the last trip, I suggest bringing the trail map on your phone or paper. Also, since there is no viability from the street, I would bring another adult with you.
Check out the pictures... and check out this hiking in the middle of Houston!
