Event Description

BCO - A Walk in the Woods

aka Hiking Memorial Park Trails 

Meet at 7:45, start 8 AM to 9:30 AM

Memorial Park by the rugby/soccer field parking lot

N Picnic Lane Houston, TX 77007 (see map @ bottom)


Memorial Park, known as the Central Park of H-town, is an amazing 1466-acre park (one of the largest in the county) right inside the loop! Trails are a mix of hard packed dirt, sand, trees and tree roots. It is wooded and wild in the middle of the city! 


Join us for an hour and a half quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and more adventuresome) trails our park has to offer.  Wear tennis shoes or hiking boots, as it’s easy to bang a toe on a tree root.  And, there’s some "elevation" in the park that you wouldn’t expect from just driving by. Remember to bring water; there are no water fountains along the trails. 


After the hike, a group goes out for breakfast and coffee.


Here’s what our friends at have to say:

“Memorial Park offers a convenient escape from the concrete jungle of Houston with seven miles of dirt trails. Trails are marked and named by their “Color” of trail markers.

Please, check the meeting location map on the Bayou City Outdoors site calendar.
