The Best Hikes in Houston, Texas
Houston is known for many things — top-notch restaurants, experimental bars, world-class art museums and a newly revitalized downtown.

Both locals and visitors alike are benefiting from more space to go running, biking, canoeing and more. Although several of the city’s parks sustained flooding during Hurricane Harvey, most of them are now fully operational. Here are four of the best for outdoors activities in Houston.
