Mountain Biking The Trails At Memorial Park

****   Add a review
#167 of 273 mountain bike trails in Texas
#8780 in the world

The trail has minor ups and downs, anthills, a few small ramps to jump a lot of fast paced winding trails. Overall a fast paced trail. Recommended route orange or green trail. I'm not sure on the distance of each trail.

    Haven't rode these trails in about 10 years. Sure did miss them. Lots of fun. Trails were in good shape thanks to the GHORBA volunteers.

    The trail system in Memorial Park is amazing when you consider that the park is within the inner loop of Houston. The features are challenging and can give you a really run for your money. You can link several trails together and get a ride in. Be prepared to ride roots and sandy tracks. The roots are smooth which makes riding them a challenge. Some of my favorites trails are Green, Orange and he Tri-angle. Note that trails are shared with runners and walkers but that should not stop you from enjoying these great inner city trails!!

    About as good as you can get for an urban trail. Closed frequently due to weather, but these trails are frustrating when wet. Green trail is my favorite. Combine this with the paved Buffalo Bayou loop for a good 20 mile ride with as much elevation change as you can get in the swamp.

    Nice to have some trails in Houston and well kept in most places. But trails are very crowded and maps are long gone at intersections. I'd suggest Anthills and these if you need some variety.

    Trail is often busy, but the quality of the trails is good. For the most challenging ride, go to the trail called the 'triangle.'

    Great trails in the center of Houston. I will always ride them when in the area. Good flow on the network and easy access from major roads.

    Nice trail network of flowy, fast, and generally non-technical trails. Especially nice given the location. Be sure to check out the "triangle" trails between Woodway, Memorial, and I-610. They're the most technical trails of those open to bikes, and have a few actual (very short) climbs. These trails are often very crowded -- think about a night ride if you want extra challenge and no crowds.

    Great ride for being in Houston, the trails have a wide range in the difficulty. Great place to ride, i will go back for sure.

    This is really great trail for what it is, being in the center of houston. GHORBA does a really good job with the up keep on this trail. The trail is divided into sections for easy, intermediate, and advanced. It is a great place to practice technical skills, just wish it were longer.

    Decent trail for the area. lots of closures when I was there. Proximity is key here.

    Memorial Park (aka Ho Chi Minh) is nice, and close to Houstonians. The Park is pretty flat, but fast. The triangle trail (aka Infantry Woods) is reopened. Triangle is more difficult than the rest of the opened trails. The trail mouth is kind of hidden though. Off to the right of the entrance to the Arboretum. To get to it, drop-in off the sidewalk near the Arboretum entrance, then go through the tunnel under Woodway. Wind your way east and after 2 more tunnels, exit at the train tracks. Turn around, ride in reverse.

    Memorial has a trail for everyone from beginners and up. Many of the difficult trails are closed.... The best feature about these trails is the ease to transition to other trails. Hint: there are more trails than the park map leads on.
