George Mitchell Preserve: Nature Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike offers a creek, dense woods, birds, and wildlife, including deer. The preserve is conveniently located on the south side of The Woodlands, north of Houston. Although surrounded by bustling subdivisions, this 1,700-acre preserve provides a pleasant getaway. The trail opened in the spring of 2008 and is a major link in the Spring Creek Greenway Project, which will allow hikers access to 32 miles of connected trails.

The signage is very good. Bring drinking water since none is available on the trail, Sand use insect repellant to ward off attacking mosquitoes. The trail is 6 feet wide and mostly gravel. A short connector trail leads to the Nature Loop Trail. This trail is part of a series of connector parks and trails that form the Spring Creek Greenway, which, when finished, will form a 32-mile continuous linear trail along
Spring Creek—a bonanza for hikers."

"The George Mitchell Nature Preserve is in The Woodlands, a community just north of Houston. It is located close to one of the newer neighborhoods, which are all known for excellent running trails. Across Flintridge Drive is one of the cement trails accessible to bikes, wheelchairs, strollers, and of course runners and hikers. National Tails awarded The Woodlands the 2010 Developer Award to recognize high-quality, well-designed, multi-use trail systems that are integrated into private developments. With more than 125 miles of trails, The Woodlands is one of the more trail-oriented communities in Texas. While most of the trails wind throughout the neighborhood, the George Mitchell trail is a wooded trail offering a good glimpse of native Texas flora and fauna." Read more

A well-maintained trail in The Woodlands along Spring Creek. Part of this 2.3 mile trail is a gravel road. Some of the trail markers are knocked down, probably from flooding during Hurricane Harvey. There are lots of dog walkers and mountain bikers sharing the trail.
