Houston Hiking & Backpacking

We also take several trips throughout the year to the Appalachian Trail, Colorado, and other amazing back country destinations.

We follow the Leave No Trace Rules! Make sure that you know them whenever you go play outdoors!

Places to Hike in and around Houston:

Huntsville State Park - About 7 miles south of Huntsville. A moderately easy day hike through the woods surrounding Lake Raven. Special attractions: Lake, lush forest, trail head at Nature Center. Click Here for Details

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

Brazos Bend State Park - Brazos Bend State Park, approximately 28 miles southwest of Houston, covers roughly 5000 acres. Check map for various trail heads. Click Here for Details

Lake Houston - The Forest Trail, which does not feature much elevation change, is difficult due to its length: 8.82 mile loop. It starts at the parking lot. Click Here for Details
