A WORD OF CAUTION ON THESE URBAN BAYOU HIKES: WILD ANIMALS MAY BE LESS OF A RISK BUT HUMAN ANIMALS ARE NOT, ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF VALUABLES LEFT OUT ON THE OPEN IN YOU CARS OR WHO SEE YOU PUTTING THEM IN YOUR TRUNK. SO PLEASE DON'T BRING VALUABLES AND IF YOU DO, TAKE THEM WITH YOU ON THE HIKE.
The Hike: From Townwood Park, we will start the hike on the north side of Sims Bayou heading east (red route on the hike map, CLICK HERE) to past HWY 288 for ~.5mi. Then we switch to the southern side of the bayou, where possible, for our return back to Townwood Park (blue route on hike map).
This the 5th bayou we take on in our pursuit to explore the trails and parks on and near the 10 bayous that define hiking in Houston. For a list of the bayous: CLICK HERE.
For this bayou,this is the 2nd of about 4 hikes doing Sims Bayou from West to East. For our progress so far CLICK HERE.
Gathering Place: As you enter the park (click on the ballon icon location above), make a right into the first large parking lot you see. The group should be visible at the lot or somewhere in the shade.
