Comments: The trails in Memorial Park where extremely crowded, we hiked about 8.5 miles around a lot of the trails and had to constantly dodge people on bikes (even thou park rules say that bikers are supposed to yield right of way to pedestrians) and at one point had to wait for about 12 – 16 people on bikes to pass and let us get back on the trail. It got pretty annoying to just get a good rhythm and hear “rider” coming from in front of or behind you… but that is better than the people who don’t say anything and almost run you over. And even thou some trails said “No Bikes” people where still biking the trail. Not the place to go for good hiking but I guess if you are in the city and want to get off the beaten path it would be a nice little walk that shoulders the bayou in some parts.
