These trails parallel the Buffalo Bayou trail between Beltway 8 and Eldridge Parkway. The trail is trough a heavily wooded area consisting of a main (easier) trail away from the creek with increasingly difficult (and rooty) trails diverging from the main trail toward the creek. The trails Directly adjacent from the creek suffer from erosion in some points requiring dismount or turnaround. The far eastern portion of the trail (East of Wilcrest) is a well maintained area with a large dirt jump area.

Trail quality is good and well maintained.
