Bayou City Outdoors - A Walk in the Woods & Picnic
AKA Hiking Memorial Park Trails
Meet at 8:00am and leave at 8:15am
Picnic at 11:00 am
We meet in the Rugby Parking lot
Memorial Park, known as the Central Park of H-town, is an amazing 1466 acre park (one of the largest in the county) right inside the loop! Trails are a mix of hard packed dirt, sand, trees and tree roots. Even with the loss of trees from the drought, it is still green and wooded.
Join us for an hour and a half quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and a little more adventuresome) trails our park has to offer. 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.
Remember to bring water; there are no water fountains along the trails. As long as it is cool out (70 or less), this is a dog friendly event that your canines can enjoy with us. They do need to be on leash and don’t forget your doggy bags.
Bring a cooler with drinks and a snack, a chair, or a blanket and join us for a casual picnic after our hike (No glass please)
Here’s what our friends at GHORBA.org have to say:
“Memorial Park offers a convenient escape from the concrete jungle of Houston with seven miles of dirt trails. Trails are marked and named by their “Color” of trail markers.”

Please, check the meeting location map on the Bayou City Outdoors site calendar event details. Once we are in the trails it will be hard for any late arrivals to catch up. Meeting location description: We meet in the Rugby Parking lot. It is on the south side of Memorial drive, on North Picnic Loop Lane (we don’t know why it is called north…it is on the south side) a little more towards the west side of Picnic Loop lane is a smaller parking lot with a tree growing in it. This is the Rugby Parking Lot. Map link: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=29.765905,-95.445297&spn=0.004933,0.003954&t=h&z=18
