Trails

Cypresswood Trails
The Greater Houston Off-Road Bicycling Association (GHORBA) has partnered with Precinct 4 to develop a single-track, natural-surface off-road bicycling trail at Collins Park. The trail, named Cypresswood Trails, heads east from the ball fields to T. C. Jester.

Riders have access to the existing amenities such as the parking lot, rest rooms, drinking fountains, picnic areas, and trailhead located inside Collins Park. All riders, no matter the experience level, should wear a helmet and appropriate bicycling apparel/gear is recommended. The trail is open daily from dawn until dusk. 

GHORBA and their partners offer several mountain biking skills clinics each year. Suitable for all ages and levels of skill, the clinics are open to the public. To find out about future clinics, please visit GHORBA’s Web site at www.ghorba.org.

Gourley Nature Trail
The Gourley Nature Trail, named in honor of Genevieve and Robert Gourley who donated the easement, connects Collins Park with Meyer Park. The trail, which is approximately 2,850 feet long and 10 feet wide, is made of asphalt and includes a concrete bridge to cross over an existing drainage ditch. Additionally, the Cypress Creek Flood Control Coalition (CCFCC) provided funding for the benches and signage located along the trail through a $10,000 grant they received from REI.
