Hunters Glen Jogging Trail
The Hunters Glen Jogging Trail head starts at 1522 Texas Pkwy. adjacent to the FBISD Alternative School on Independence Boulevard at Texas Parkway.
Oyster Creek Trail
Oyster Creek Trail is located along Oyster Creek next to the YMCA at 4433 Cartwright Road. Trail can also be accessed at Mosley Park. The first 1.21 miles of the Oyster Creek section of the Missouri City Trail System was opened and dedicated in August 1997.
Oyster Creek Trail is an outdoor pathway for exercise enthusiasts who want to enjoy a scenic hike, bike, walk or jog. Missouri City recently upgraded the 2.31 mile path and it now includes a paved bike and pedestrian trail along Oyster Creek Bayou between Dulles Avenue and Cartwright Road, offering recreational and mobility opportunities for residents. The trail connects to Sugar Land’s trail and allows citizens to travel on foot or bicycle from Mosley Park off Murphy Road to Oyster Creek Park in Sugar Land near Highway 6. When improvements are made to the Cartwright Road Bridge this winter, the trail will be extended under the bridge and connected to the existing trail south of Cartwright Road.
