4.30.16 Pundt Park, Houston, TX
Pundt Park has various off-road/dirt trails for mountain bikes and a main paved trail that goes to Jesse H. Jones Park. We went a few hours after it rained hard in the AM and the dirt trails were muddy and had pools of standing water which blocked passage through the trails. There were hikers, road and trail bikers on the paved roads.
Heavy mosquitoes so apply repellent - don't stand still for too long because you will be eaten alive by those f**kers.
Paved trail is miles long so bring hydration pack (lots of water) and some trail mix.
Best bikes for the Pundt Park are hardtail mtb (overkill with fs bikes) for the dirt trails and road / hybrid bikes for the paved trails.
Abundant shade along trails which winds along a creek at most points.

No bikes allowed.
Bring water and do not throw trash along trails - keep trails clean!
Swimming permissible if low bacteria levels - check with Park Office.
Water fall was beautiful today due to recent heavy rains.
Parking lot is small so access is limited.
Noticed a new public restroom being built today. The current restroom is literally a hole in the ground - very rugged.
River Trail - much longer and rougher hike then McKinney Falls Trail.
5.23.15 Cypresswoods Trails (Paved), Houston TX
Started in parking lot of Park at about 3 pm on Monday afternoon. A lot of families amd joggers on the trail. There's a few "dirt trails" that branches of the paved trail but I didn't take them because I rode my hybrid bike (Focus). Next time will take my old school 26" hard tail for a spin.
There's a river (bayou?) that runs along a big section and there's also a good size pond along the trail.
Nice trail for a leisure or light ride. For sure a great place to jog. Flat as heck...what else can I expect in Texas!
