Kinder East Attributes

Trail Context

This trail follows the Kinder Morgan pipeline easement from Willow Waterhole Bayou, northwest to the intersection of W Bellfort and Chimney Rock. The easement is approximately 120’ wide and is located between single family homes. A proposed crossing of Willow Waterhole Bayou would provide access to the Willow Waterhole Greenspace, Levitt Pavilion, and other attractions. Current HCFCD activities could provide opportunities for trail development.
