The Spring Creek Greenway is located in Harris County, about 20 miles north of Downtown Houston in Southeast Texas. The greenway consists of 13 miles of natural forest and sandy beaches along the creek along with wildlife sightings, fishing, hiking trails, bird watching, picnicking, an archery range and canoeing.

A 13-mile long paved and unpaved recreational trail winds through the greenway from Dennis Johnston Park in the north to Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Preserve in the south and then to the east as far as Interstate 69. The route of the trail goes from the City of Spring to the City of Humble. This trail allows hikers and bike riding. Much of the trail is paved. There are other dirt paths that connect to the main trail for further exploration of the area.

There are several parks and other attractions along the trail including:

  • Dennis Johnston Park
  • Old Riley Fuzzel Road Preserve
  • Pekinpaugh Preserve and Nature Center
  • Pundt Park
  • Carter Park
  • Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center
