This week’s hiking trail is the Rails to Trails Columbia Tap Trail, which runs from Dixie Drive just south of Hermann Park to Dowling Street. This 4-mile trail is part of the national Rails to Trails program and is constructed on the 150 year old Houston Tap and Brazoria Railways. It is a 10-foot wide concrete trail that is ideal for an 8-mile out and back experience. There are only a few of these trails in Houston with the longest being the old railway that runs west and parallel to I-10 through the Energy Corridor. This trail offers a more urban feel as it winds through the Third Ward and into Downtown Houston. Head out early to beat the heat.
