Spring Creek Greenway

Spring Creek is the longest connected forested corridor in the Unites States. Thanks to a generational investment, you can now bike from I-45 to US-59, while passing through countless parks on a mostly shaded corridor. See below the largest segments to explore the corridor, with links to AllTrails. Hidden in the trees, the greenway currently runs 17 miles from Humble to Spring, connecting several Harris County parks.  You can ditch your car at entrance points to explore on two wheels. It’s easy to forget you’re only about 30 minutes north of Houston as you bike or hike along the pristine Spring Creek where wildlife and natural beauty are guaranteed.
