The Spring Creek Greenway is a step closer to connectivity with a major greenbelt in northeast Harris County as construction on a two-mile section of the trail begins.
Projected to take six to nine months to complete, Phase IV of the Spring Creek Greenway will run from Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center to Highway 59 at the San Jacinto River. When Phase IV is complete, the Spring Creek Greenway trail will be 13.6 miles long.
The new trail will connect with the Bevil Jarrell Memorial Bridge in Humble, which gives hikers, bikers, and riders access to more than 100 miles of greenbelts and bike paths throughout Kingwood.
Since 1979, the Spring Creek Greenway project has grown to connect five Precinct 4 parks from Dennis Johnston to Jones Park. The proposed 40-mile-long linear trail system is an ongoing project intended to protect the pristine habitat along Spring Creek.
