The trees and the fountains make for a great stroll to relieve stress or exercise. In Rice University there is a great museum to get lost in!!

the oak shaded path around Rice U is a wonder! It's still there, and plenty of people were walking and jogging it. When July temps in Houston soar, at least there's shade all the way around. Watch out for the roots, though.

ideal trails for jogging or just walking, especially in the sweltering heat of Houston. It is covered with shady huge trees so this makes the jog/walk pleasurable.

I love this trail. It is a little bit short of 3 miles when you go all the way around yet I've run this in the late evenings and have felt very safe. It is near the Rice University Campus and of course most of the students are out there running. The trees provide a canopy over the trail and shades you from the sun for most parts of the trail. If you run in the evening, you will see all the medical buildings lit up in the night and because you are close to Kirby, you hear the hustle & bustle of West University. Its a great spot to people-watch if you just want to go for a stroll.
