Montrose Neighboorhood

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Montrose is one of several lovely, centrally located residential neighborhoods we recommend for running in Houston. The neighborhood is known for bars, eclectic restaurants, indie shops & galleries, and nice views of the downtown skyline. There are numerous pleasant, tree-lined streets with an interesting mix of homes, from more modern architecture to older bungalows. There are numerous galleries and museums, and the Rothko Chapel. Some nice streets for running: Fairview, Waugh, Vermont and Avondale.

One can combine this neighborhood with the trails in Buffalo Bayou and Tinsley parks, about 1 mile north of central Montrose. Also, the River Oaks neighborhood, also wonderful for running, is just to the west.

Essentials
  • No set route - create your own run along the pleasant streets & combine w/nearby routes
  • Just south of Buffalo Bayou
