Urban Escape

Discover the country’s longest connected, forested urban greenway - Spring Creek Greenway.

Now and then, we all need a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. The traffic, noise, and pressure to always be on the go can be burdensome. Fortunately, we don’t even have to venture far from our favorite amenities to experience an outdoor escape. With the completion of the trailhead to Spring Creek Greenway, Houstonians now have access to the longest connected, urban forested corridor in the nation. Covering 40 miles and more than 12,000 acres of native Texas flora and fauna, the Greenway is a perfect way to get a change of scenery. 

In addition to having great shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options, north Houston’s City Place offers convenient access to Spring Creek Greenway. Perfect for hiking, biking, and bird watching, the Greenway provides various family-friendly options for those seeking outdoor fun. For those looking for a little more adventure, Cypress Trails Equestrian Center offers trail rides ranging from an hour to all day for riders of all experience levels. Southwest Paddle Sports lets guests immerse themselves in Spring Creek with canoe and kayak rentals.
