Just north of Houston, Texas, Pundt Park is a 380-acre escape that features hiking & walking trails, biking, playgrounds, horseriding, and even a dog park! My girlfriend and I left early on a Saturday morning to explore the park.
Address: 4129 Spring Creek Dr, Spring, TX 77373
Hardwood Trail (~0.5 miles)
After parking in the Free Parking lot, we headed towards Hardwood Trail, which runs alongside the dog park. You can walk on the paved path, where you’ll be passed by cyclists, or walk about 15 feet off to the side on the dirt trail that winds through the trees. We chose the dirt path.
Oxbow Loop and Trail (~0.6 miles)
Hardwood Trail naturally leads towards Oxbow Loop on the north-side of the park.
Continuing on the top-side of the Oxbow Loop trail takes you to Oxbow trail, a very sandy path through thick vegetation.
Walnut Trail (~0.2 miles)
We marched through the sand towards the beach.
After getting a sneak preview, the trail takes you away from the beach area back into a section where we had to wade through tall grass. We didn’t see any velociraptors, thankfully.
I put quotations around “Beach” because that is a generous term. It’s more of a sandy bank, which is expected for this ecological area north of Houston.
Creekside Trail (~0.5 miles)
After you’re done relaxing on the beach, it’s time to get back to hiking. Creekside Trail winds southward. Although we didn’t see any horses, we found evidence of them being there previously, if you catch my drift.
Spring Creek Gateway Trail & Fallen Pine Trail (~0.6 miles)
These two trails form a loop towards the Southern edge of the park.
Review and Recommendations
A small blog post for a small, but pleasant park.
If you live near Spring, Texas, definitely visit on an upcoming weekend when the weather is nice. The park was a beautiful place for an easy walk through the trees.
For those unfamiliar with Spring, it’s about 10 miles north of Houston. If you visit Pundt Park in the morning, swing back towards Old Town Spring to grab a late lunch at Loose Caboose or Corkscrew Barbecue.
Have a safe trip!
