Go with kids!! It is a great family trail on the middle of the forest! Bring your water and bug spray.

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

This is a small natural preserve in the heart of The Woodlands. There are picnic facilities and nice walking trails and multiple separate biking trails. Pay attention to directions as it is easy to get lost, though you're never too far from civilization!

Love the location; in a suburban master planned community, but you feel out in nature. Love the hike to the pond. Love that you can explore off trail if you so desire. Cons: trail markers can be confusing at certain junctures, bikes, and dogs can disrupt your walk or jog.

Surrounding development is apparently sending excessive water into the park during heavy rains, washing-out several areas - - particularly on the south/Fleming Park side. It is possible to carry a bike across the downed trees and deep trenches, but it is not easy. I felt sorry for a family trying to navigate. I would suggest families stay on the flat... More

I have been lost in these woods and don't recommend at this time because bridges are out and paths are not taken care of at this time. I know they are working on it. Also, the park visitors don't follow the rules about keeping dogs on a leash!!!
