About This Tour

Welcome to the Spring Creek Nature Trail TravelStorys EcoTour, brought to you by Bayou Land Conservancy and Union Pacific.

The trail is named after Spring Creek, which is a large natural waterway flowing along the path. As you walk along the trail, you’ll be able to see both Spring Creek and smaller waterways that feed into Spring Creek.

Spring Creek is an important waterway. Not only is it the boundary between Harris and Montgomery counties, but it’s important for our drinking water.

Spring Creek flows to the east into the San Jacinto River, which then flows into Lake Houston. And Lake Houston is a major source of drinking water for the greater Houston area. This means conserving the wetland habitats of Spring Creek directly benefits the water that lands in your drinking glass.

Bayou Land Conservancy spearheaded the creation of the Spring Creek Nature Trail alongside our community partners to provide much-needed access to local outdoor spaces. Texas’ public trails, parks, and preserves are a precious community resource.

Bayou Land Conservancy began its mission of land preservation in 1996, inspired by the example of Terry Hershey, a local environmental hero. We preserve land next to streams for flood control, clean water, and wildlife. We do this by working with willing landowners to so they can have peace of mind knowing their land will stay natural forever!  To learn more about us click on the orange banner on your map screen.
