    2.9 mile trail, so it's a bit short. Would be nice if there were some trail maps that included some of the stuff that isn't part of the 3 mile loop.

    There is a Men's and Women's locker room with showers and indoor bathrooms. It's near the tennis courts, inside the same building of Smoothie Kings. $0.75 for the showers.

    Great loop ride for those wanting to get some miles in with varied turns and try to latch onto the occasional pace lines that start up. It's an approximately 1 mile loop. Come join the herd!

    Great place to run - better place in the summer is the 3 mile loop around the Rice University Campus. Cary Michael Cox

    I owe it to Memorial and its beautiful running trail for helping me train for all the races I've done this past year. This trail feels like home.

    My 2nd fav running trail, next to the Rice Village tree tunnels. Oh & I don't mean to be creepy but, I think old couples walking together are THE cutest.

    Don't count on the water fountains to work or to be nearby when you get thirsty; I recommend jogging with a Camelbak on! Read more

    Awesome place to run. My only complaint is that the shower and bathroom area is so old & dirty that I'd rather go to work/home then use them. In dire need of an update.

    Get 4 miles out of your cardio routine. Start at the 0 mile marker & head to the 2 mile marker & turn around back to your starting point. This maximizes your routine!

    I'm just a lowly jog/walker but even I understand the rules of the track. You warn ppl as you pass on the left, stay on the right, don't walk 7 abreast...

    Houston refuses to put more than 1 drinking fountain at the stretching area, so bring your own water.

    Maybe someday the City will get the idea that we need more water fountains at the stretching area. Good thing they put in those 4 really expensive electric car charging stations that no one ever uses!

    One loop isn't 3 miles. To be accurate you must start at a mile mark and hit each one along the way. The Mile 0 mark is by the tennis courts.
