Top Rated Trail: White Oak Bayou Trail

The White Oak Bayou Trail, which includes 17 miles of public green space and hike-and-bike trails within city limits, has been recognized by Afar Magazine as one of ‘5 Urban Trails That Connect U.S. Cities to the Great Outdoors’. Memorial Heights Redevelopment Authority was the major funder of the 2-mile segment of White Oak Bayou Greenway from west of Studemont Street to west of Durham Street near the Moy Street hike-and-bike bridge. The Moy Street Bridge was also part of the project. Included in the project were connections to Harvard Street, Bonner Street, Patterson Street, Yale Street and Heights Boulevard. Additionally, brick salvaged from the historic Yale Street Bridge was embedded in the new trail between Heights and Yale. Below is the link to the article and photos of the trail.
