Rails To Trails

This is a recently opened 5-mile stretch of the MKT hike and bike trail that runs through the Heights area of Houston. Named after the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, it is part of the Rails-to-Trails Initiative that utilizes abandoned rail right of ways and converts them into bicycle and jogging trails. The Houston area has close to 15 miles of these converted trails.
