Visitors to Rayford Crossing always comment on the lush greenery that surrounds The Woodlands area. We are lucky to have an abundance of green space just steps away, including the Spring Creek Greenway. The Greenway project connects and protects about 12,000 acres of forest on both sides of the creek. We’re excited for visitors to experience all that the project has to offer, including education and outdoor recreation.
Our ancestors wouldn’t recognize The Woodlands these days with all the development! But a visit to the Greenway reveals the same pristine forests that sustained the Akokisa Indians over two hundred years ago. The acres of bottomland hardwood forest have created a unique ecology in the area that will make you feel completely removed from the sprawling Greater Houston area.
Birdwatchers will love getting a peek at some of the birds who make Spring Creek home at least for part of the year. Migratory songbirds and white pelicans are frequent visitors, and many pileated woodpeckers, kingfishers, and others stay year-round. You might even spot the notable Swainson’s warbler, which attracts birdwatchers from all over the world! But birds aren’t the only wildlife you’ll see up close and personal at Spring Creek. Deer cross the creek while otters slide along the banks. Racoons, opossums, and other “creatures of the night” come out to play in the dark. Fishermen will find an abundance of species year-round, including bass, catfish, crappie, and freshwater drum.
