Memorial Park - This is an easy day in the heart of Houston. A 5-mile network of trails criss-cross the 155-acre center. The trails wind through a lush second growth forest of tall pines. Trail head off the Purple trail near the Soccer fields or park at the bike trails. Click Here for Details

Double Lake - Only 1 hour away from Houston and over 18 miles of new trails. A 5-mile hiking trail leads to Big Creek Scenic Area, and there is also access to the Lone Star Hiking Trail, which offers an opportunity to see the "back country" of East Texas. Click Here for Details

Lone Star Trail - This 129 mile National Recreation Trail meanders the breadth of the Sam Houston National Forest. There are many easy-to-find trail heads. Click Here for Details
