This hike is for those who love woods, creeks, native plants, and wildlife. The trail winds through the woods past wetlands and ponds. There are overlooks for Spring and Panther Creeks, showing their high sandy banks. Small warblers like the heavy forest understory, while shorebirds, including egrets, enjoy the creeks. Water snakes may be seen from the bridge on the truck access road. The wildflower display in front of the office attracts butterflies, birds, bees, and other critters. Head south from the office and pass through the gate into the 71-acre trail and Spring Creek Greenway area. This section is permanently protected from development by a conservation easement held by the Legacy Land Trust. The Spring Creek Green-A young couple determines the best way around a muddy stretch of trail. Many trails in the Houston area have muddy spots after a rain.

This is a very easy trail and hike. Print your own map and directions before you go as there were no trail maps available except the one posted at the trailhead. There are a lot of debris left from the flooding during hurricane Harvey. You can see driftwood high up in some trees. Trail maintenance was pretty good, no deadfalls on the trails and very little litter. The trail itself is easy to follow but is not traditionally marked with blazes. There are trail signs at intersections. Some native plants are identified, especially around the Pond Loop trail, but some of the signs are so faded as to be illegible. Parking is convenient. The precinct office was closed.
