Runner Notes

You are not supposed to run in the Arboretum. Trails are designed for hiking only.

Description

The North Meadow Trail is a very short but beautiful trail that passes through the largest meadow in the Houston Arboretum. You must take the Inner Loop or Outer Loop trails to get to it as the North Meadow Trail connects the two. It is half wide gravel fill trail and half boardwalk. The latter part of the trail takes you right to the edge of the pond and offers lovely views. There are a few benches to rest and really take in the view.

The arboretum has lovely views and is flat enough for a lazy Frenchie to go on his walk.
