An incredibly fun way to indulge your 5 senses in a place that calls itself the Bayou City  is on a magnificent  adventure on the bayou.  I  have fond memories of hanging out at  bayous and parks in my neighborhood when I was younger. It was the place where teenage boys gathered to subvert our fears of the water by hunting for turtles, fishing  and cajoling the girls into skinny dipping.  

 In a place that calls itself the Bayou City  an incredibly fun way to indulge your 5 senses is on a magnificent  adventure enjoying  the 300 plus miles of Bayou Greenways where hiking, biking and paddle trails connect  neighborhoods, neighbors and nature.

  You’re  never further than a few expressway exits from amazing destinations waiting for you to discover their brilliant treasures.  Whether your goals are to  awaken your creative spirit, incite your cultural intelligence or cuddle up with that someone special you can enjoy doing it on the bayou.

    Occasional trees along the banks and some upland woods are part of the panoramic view along the 1 1/2 mile paddle trail.

Carpenters Bayou

Carpenter’s Bayou is home to cypress trees, bird rookeries and a few alligators in the protected habitat. It also  has hike and bike trails. Its waters are an integral part of the paddle trail that  flows southward from around Lake Houston and  merges into  Sheldon Lake State Park .

White Oak Bayou Hike and Bike Trail

A great trail  for walking,  cycling or  jogging. This is the bayou described above in the swimming hole raid led by police. Its paths are  wide and smooth with ample places to rest along the 8 mile path. It's pretty easy to connect with both the Heights Bike trail and  Memorial Park.  The Southern half is well lit for night riding
If you make it a point to be among the first people to enjoy the new bits and pieces of the trails as they are completed, you'll have no trouble finding a private alcove that's perfect for skinny dipping or a picnic for two.  
There are several more miles of hike and bike trails currently under development. Each of them will reveal fantastic new recreational opportunities and scenic views begging to be enjoyed.
