This is a nature preserve park fitted with hiking paths and mountain bike trails. I especially enjoy mountin biking and although there is only one true trail, it makes for a great workout just minutes from home. I enjoy wild animals around, and that there are some people using it for exercising or simply enjoying nature. There is a large... More

The parking is limited, but the short hike (a little over a mile) is an easy walking loop through a nicely wooded area.

Great hiking & biking trails, all well marked. We took the grandkids there (ages 4-12) for a hike and everyone enjoyed it. Don't forget to bring water and a camera!

The simple, easy-to-walk dirt path goes on and on through the woods with the opposite loop frequently visible. Nothing distinguished about it. Takes maybe 30 minutes or so. A small parking lot, but watch carefully or you'll miss the entry sign.

Get the feeling of walking in the the wilderness while not even leaving The Woodlands. Parking can be a problem on the weekends. No concrete just hiking trails and people.

Hard to believe this is within 8 miles of over 100,000 people. It is a gem of a nature trail right in the heart of Suburbs. My only complaint is that a fair bit of damage occurred during the hurricane and parts are still washed out years later But even with that you can cross the creek and have a... More

Close enough to home yet you feel a million miles away. Wonderful hiking trails full of beautiful trees, flowers and ponds.
