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.
