The dirt trails, however, cut through the densely grown forest growing along the bayou, and are not easily accessible or typically traveled.

Wear tennis shoes or hiking boots, 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. Bring water; there are no water fountains along the trails. If it is cool out (below 70) dogs are welcome. Bring Fido¿s water bowl, leash and doggie bags. After the hike, join a group of us for lunch and coffee. Look for the group gathered at Cafe Express. There will be white and green Bayou City Outdoor signs with the group and on the vehicle.
