Spring Creek Nature Trail

The Spring Creek Nature Route is the first trail that will connect Harris County to Montgomery County and continue all the way to Interstate 45. It is a winding path that travels along and across Spring Creek, and it is encircled by verdant vegetation and lush vegetation.

There are four primary access points to the trail: The Dr. Ann Snyder Trailhead can be found at the intersection of Creekside Forest Drive and Pruitt Road, the Rob Fleming Trailhead can be found at 6464 Creekside Forest Drive, the Flintridge Trailhead can be found within the George Mitchell Nature Preserve, and the Montgomery County Preserve Trailhead can be found off of Pruitt Road. At present time, the Dr. Ann Snyder Trailhead is not accessible to the general public; however, this should change later on in the summer.

Jill Boullion, who is the Executive Director of the Bayou Land Conservancy, was the first person to speak at the ceremony, and she began by providing a brief history of the creation of the route by her group. She stated that on March 10, 2017, a group very similar to the one that was assembled there today gathered at the Creekside Park Preserve to break ground on the Spring Creek Nature Trail. “I recall that gathering being graced by the presence of a bald eagle swooping over our heads,” the speaker said. “It was a blessing.” Before the summer of 2018, we wanted to have completed all 13 miles of the route that was built by volunteers. To tell you the truth, we weren’t entirely confident that we could achieve that goal, but here we are today to celebrate the incredible success that we have had. The first phase of construction has been finished, and it was finished somewhat ahead of time.

Recreational Trails Grant to the tune of one hundred thousand dollars was awarded by Texas Parks and Wildlife to fund the natural-surface trail. The BLC, The Woodlands Township, the American Hiking Society, and REI all contributed matching funds for this project. On the Harris County side of Spring Creek at the George Mitchell Nature Preserve, construction began in May 2017 and proceeded eastward. The trail comes to an end at the Montgomery County Preserve, which is owned by Montgomery County Precinct 3 and is kept in its natural state thanks to a conservation easement that is held by Bayou Land Conservancy.

According to Suzanne Simpson, who serves as the director of land stewardship for BLC, the route was developed so that it might fulfill a need in the community. She added that the trail was born out of an expanding community desire for access to these public open places. This desire was the impetus for the creation of the path. In contrast to asphalt, the surface of the route is made of natural materials. Therefore, this only constitutes yet another amenity that members of the community, particularly cyclists and hikers, are free to make use of.

Volunteers who had participated in the Spring Creek Greenway Ambassador Program of the BLC were responsible for the construction of a significant portion of the route, including boardwalks and foot bridges. More than 2,500 hours’ worth of voluntary labor was put into the construction process by laborers, who were led by a core team of trail builders and directed by Simpson.
