George Bush Park, renamed after the 41st president in 1997, has over 11 miles of hiking and biking paths in its 7,800-acre expanse. This 4.2 mile route is a sampling of the park's main path, but veers onto a gravel singletrack trail for a seasonal 1.7-mile stretch through a swampy swath of the Buffalo Bayou.

Begin by following the trail east from the parking lot on Barker-Cypress Road. You'll skirt a large, grassy meadow on your left as the trail beelines north. This route turns off the main path onto the Noble Road trail at mile 0.65, cruising gravel singletrack through riparian habitat and bottomland forest as it winds north and west before crossing the swampy—sometimes flooded—path of the upper Buffalo Bayou.

At mile 2.3, you'll rejoin the main trail. Turn south for the 1.8-mile stretch to the trailhead parking lot. Or, add as many as 11 round-trip miles to your trip by continuing north on the path along the Barker Dam to the Noble Road parking lot

Located completely inside Barker Reservoir, this hike and bike route is sometimes inundated. Be aware that recent wet weather may make this route unusable, and call the park at (281) 531-1592 to check conditions before your trip.
