Hike Jesse Jones Park

There are over six miles of paved, all-weather, wheelchair-accessible trails within Jones Park. The Jones-Bender Trail, which is 1.5 miles long and 10 feet wide, is the newest section of paved trails that points to the future expansion of the Spring Creek Greenway Project trail system: an interconnecting system of trails from Highway 59 at Kingwood to Interstate 45 at The Woodlands and beyond. The Jones-Bender Trail is open daily to bicyclists. You can hike the East Trails, which includes 2.2 miles of trail that takes you to the old Redbud Hill Homestead, a re-creation of an 1820 East Texas homestead and Akokisa Indian Village. The West Trails use part of the Palmetto, High Bank, White Oak, Old Logging, Cypress Boardwalk, and Picnic Loop trails. This is a 2.1 mile loop that takes you down to the creek and back. Interpretive signage along several trails assists visitors in identifying plant and wildlife species within the park. Wildlife viewing blinds are located along the Jones-Bender Trail overlooking the pond, and along the Cypress Overlook Trail near the turtle pond.
