The Montgomery County Preserve is a hidden gem in the heart of The Woodlands on Pruitt Road. It is a nice park for birdwatching, hiking, and native plant observation. There are interpretive signs on the the 1.7 miles of trail to help you identify the plants and trees in the preserve. The hiking trail is comprised of the Loop Trail, Creek Loop, and Pond Loop. While the preserve lies at the confluence of Spring Creek and Panther Creek there is no access to the water. It is a 71-acre preserve open daily at no charge. Bayou Land Conservancy holds a conservation easement (the first of its kind in the State of Texas signed with a county government) on the property, which permanently protects the land from development. You will hike in woods past wetlands and ponds with overlooks of both creeks. While this is not a long hike, it is a very quiet, remote location that makes you feel like you are far away from the city.
