I bike over to the Preserve and then ride the bike path. It take's about 20-min to do one loop. Definitely wear a helmet and gloves because it is narrow and you will be dodging trees on the sharp turns. Also, watch your toes on some short stumps in the middle of the path. Favorite time of year for this... More

This place is right off the road, but soon you are surrounded by nature. It's a very nice place to walk and get away from it all. It seems that bike trails are separate from the walking trails, so it's nice not to worry about getting run down if you're just strolling. We saw a snake scurry away and there's... More

I have been to the preserve several times to ride my bike overall the visits have been great. The bike trails are great of mountain biking with lots of bumps and hazards. This is not necessarily a place for the flower lover. Will return for a bike ride.

It always amazes me to find myself deep in nature while still being right in town. This is a great place to ride your bike, take a walk or have a picnic alone or with friends. Because it's so heavily wooded the Texas heat is tolerable. I prefer early mornings, but any time of the day is pleasant. A nice... More

This is a beautiful area with nice trails and a beautiful lake in the middle of it. I went there with my wife and two kids of 6 and 9 years old, and everybody liked it. Clean, safe, well marked trails with signs make everything a pure joy. Be careful not to get lost in the middle of it and... More

Nice and safe place to walk your dogs. Get to see deer, rabbits and squirrels. Plenty of parking at the creek side entrance

The trails offer a nice canopy of trees to help block the sun on a hot day. Great place to spot some wildlife, but be sure to wear some bug spray because the mosquitos can be quite thick.

I realize this is The Woodlands and there are deer and as such there are ticks but this particular preserve (even close to the front entrance) is full of ticks. We began to walk along the trail and were nearly run over by the cyclists so be aware that there are different trails and some are more popular with cyclists... More
