Best Hikes Near Houston

Very well marked and maintained trail with little use. Local Eagle Scouts have improved and maintained the trail. It is completely forested and follows a small creek. There are some interpretive exhibits, plant identification markers and outdoor classroom seating. To access the trailhead you must get the gate combination from the forest service office or park across FM1488 and walk across the highway. Getting the combination is a much safer option as FM1488 is a busy 4 lane road. The only downside is that the swinging bridge has been illegally painted some garish colors, ruining the natural theme of the trail and bridge in the area of the bridge.
