Spring Creek Greenway Description

The Spring Creek Greenway in Harris County, Texas, traces the south side of Spring Creek for nearly 20 miles.  The trail provides opportunities for walking, biking, wildlife watching and simply being immersed in nature. The greenway is one of only two in Harris County that has not been developed or channelized, and nature abounds in its waters and along its white sand shores, from salamanders and bass, to bald eagles and migrating birds. The surrounding forest boasts a variety of tree species including mature sycamores, bald cypress and palmettos. Parks dot the route, offering access to the trail as well as additional recreational opportunities like picnicking, outdoor education and unpaved trails.

The trail is 10-feet wide and paved, providing ample room for walkers and cyclists to enjoy. Horseback riders are not left behind - a horse-friendly trail parallels the paved one. Visitiors with horses should be aware that they are required to show proof of a negative test for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) within the past 12 months. Fishing is also welcome, with a license. Visit the Harris County website for more information

Spring Creek Greenway Reviews

great trail

The trail is wonderful. Very scenic. Well maintained and marked. Wonderful for biking or running.

If you start out in spring and head towards the rest of the trail there is a piece where it just ends. You literally have to walk/ride/run along the busy highway and then cut down a hill of tall grass to connect back on the trail.. super stupid.

Great ride close to home

We love riding this trail, because not only is it an interesting & pretty ride along the river, but also you really feel like you’re in the wilderness & away from it all. Path is in good condition & well marked

I rode a good portion of the trail today trying out a new saddle. and I was impressed. A tiny bit of elevation and curves to make it interesting.Didn't hurt that it was a gorgeous day. Not insanely busy but I got started late.

Spring Creek Greenway

Perfect trail, well kept secret! It does have a 15 mph speed limit, and it is patrolled by Harris County Constables precinct 4 on motorized vehicles. It’s a beautiful wooded area with a river running along side of it. Saw lots of pedestrians, runners, cyclists, and people on horseback. Very clean, well maintained and lots of signs and markers. Slight hills but nothing to big.
