Hike #1 – Columbia Tap Loop – July 3, 2018

Columbia Trap Trail Loop

This was my first longish hike around Houston. It was in July and very warm. This course basically circumnavigates Montrose/Midtown.  Starting in Montrose you head south the Herman Park, hook up with the Braes Bayou trail along MacGregor for a mile or so before heading north on the Columbia Tap Trail.  The CT trail loops back west heading toward downtown where it ends. You then wind through downtown to catch the Buffalo Bayou trail along Allen Parkway and then back south to complete the loop.
