About 1.5 miles of forested walking trails with biking trails throughout, with connection to additional in Creekside. Walkers may need to be careful of bikes. Trails generally well maintained but may have some trouble after heavy rains.

It is nice that the reserve is available for taking a short hike. It is basic, no amenities, the trails are marked. With the growth and development in the area, places like this will have increasing importance.

Despite it being a (normal) hot August day in Texas, the trail was nicely shaded so it made for a great walk. I would recommend bringing water. Didn't have an issue with bugs, but again, it was about 90 degrees/11 AM when I was there...More

The Nature preserve has paths but you have to be careful to avoid deeper puddles and boggy areas after rain. Mosquito repellent is essential! The walk around the Preserve took about an hour
