Dennis Johnston Park is a tucked-away walking and biking path in Spring, TX, that is great for a Saturday morning walk or bike ride. Located close to Old Town Spring, it is an easy drive from downtown Houston to the park in 30 minutes or less.

Spring Creek Greenway Trail
The Spring Creek Greenway Trail winds alongside the Spring Creek in Spring, TX. Yeah, that’s a lot of Spring 🙂
I left for a quick walk along the path on a Saturday morning.
I shared the trail with walkers, joggers, bikers, and families with strollers. It is a very family-friendly park and has plenty of space for everyone.
The Texas morning was perfect. 72 degrees Fahrenheit, light breeze, and big, clear skies.
As I mentioned above, there was some evidence of Hurricane Harvey (huge hurricane that hit the gulf coast in August 2017). There are many parks that are barely reopening due to the damage sustained over five months ago.
Just as I passed over the bridge, I found my new best friend.
Review & Recommendations
Dennis Johnston Park is a nice hiking and biking trail to use if you live near Spring, TX (northside of Houston, TX). It’s definitely not worth a long drive, but if it happens to be in your backyard, give it a visit! Especially if you have a bike.
As you can see from the pictures, it is a simple path that winds between tall trees and lots of green forest, making it ideal for a quick escape from the city. My only complaint is that the path is one long straight line so there aren’t any easy loops. You’ll have to do an out-and-back. But, the path does lead you straight to Pundt Park, another great place to visit in Spring, TX.
Thanks for reading this review, and happy travels!
