The Terry Hershey Park Trail is a 8.5-mile long system of paved and unpaved trails that is located in residential areas on the west side of the Houston area, just south of Interstate 10 and just west of the Sam Houston Parkway. The trails are located in Terry Hershey Park and wander alongside the waterway of the Buffalo Bayou. The park has a network of paved and unpaved trails, including the trails called the "Ant Hills". The park is open for running, walking and bike riding. There is kayaking along the waters of the bayou as well.

The west end of the Terry Hershey Park Trail system is located at Addicks Howell Road and Briarhills Parkway. There is a parking area for the park with access trails to Terry Hills Park and also the George Bush Park trail system. The trail to heading east Terry Hershey park tucks under the roadway and goes along the south bank adjacent to a residential neighborhood. West of N. Eldridge Parkway the trail splits and one branch heads north to go to a parking area along the frontage road and then tuck under Interstate 10. There it meets an access path to reach Park Row Drive.
