Hike #3 – Northwest Along White Oak Bayou – July 8, 2018

This was my longest hike yet in Houston – over 16 miles. The route followed the White Oak Bayou Trail to where it ends (near Fairbanks-North Houston Road). I nearly made it to the beltway (my goal) but it was hot so I stopped a bit short after 5 hours.

This hike basically parallels 290. Starting from Montrose I headed north till I hit the White Oak Bayou Trail and followed it to then end (just inside the beltway).
