It is simular to memorial with only more leaves on the trail. It has a creek crossing and logs on the trail that take some skills to get over.

Trail Directions
Take I-59 north and exit Kingwood Dr. Go about 8 miles until Kingwood Dr. ends and the remnants of the road turn left 90 degrees. That is where you continue going straight, after about 50 ft. you will see a sign that says East End Park. Just park your car at the gate but do not block it.

Summary:
I checked online and your not supposed to use this park unless you are a resident of kingwood. They say if you park your car in the park without a special sticker it is liable to be towed. So I guess in addition to the kings game and fish, his trails are off limits for those not of the kingdom.

Summary:
The trail is close to home, easy to get to. If you look off the trail there are areas to get away from the improved trail. Nice area, cool in the shade, plenty of places to rest, good potential. I like it for what it is.

Summary:
I live in Kinghood in the summer and go to school up in Arkansas. East End Park is right behind my house and it was good for MB a few years ago but now its just paved over with pebbles and is ok for a work out but technical it is not at all! Fast in some areas if you want to go fast. Not really a mountain biking trail at all, just used now for the richies of the hood and poser bikers that have never seen a real trail before. Houston area cant compete at all with Arkansas but thats cause its flat down there. Come up to the Ouachitas for some real biking!

Recommended Route:
Uhm they all kinda suck so any will do. Its an awesome park though for birding and thats why i love it in East End Park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Memorial Park trails, Lake Houston Park, not state any more cause the state wont fund Texas state parks any more so they sold it!

Summary:
Rode the trail for the first time today, but didn't get to go far due to the late start. Most of the trail is improved, with fine gravel, and very smooth. There are a few shortcuts between the improved trails, but none appeared to be challenging. There is a new elevated, wooden walkway that extends from the lake, through approximately 1/4 mile of swamp, to what looks like a new section of trail that leads to the park entrance. The only challenge to the wooden walkway was the large amount of walkers that I had to weave around. I will ride it again tomorrow, and get some pics to post. It is a fun trail if you want to bring the kids along.

Summary:
Ok, This trail is a lot of fun after it has rained for 3 days straight. I rode the trail and it had spots of 14 in. of water and lots of mud. All the bridges and technical areas have been destroyed. On a dry day this ride would suck.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Bryan, Double Lake,
