Miles and Miles of Hike, Bike and Fitness Trails
at the
George Mitchell Nature Preserve

FLINTRIDGE DRIVE TRAILHEAD
Village of Indian Springs


5171 Flintridge Drive
The Woodlands, Texas 77381

The Flintridge Drive trailhead at the George Mitchell Nature Preserve in The Woodlands Village of Indian Springs has three (3) miles of single-tract bike trails along with a wider two (2) mile trail loop. The natural-surface, sustainable, single track bike trails were designed by S & S Trails out of Austin, Texas. The trails were made possible from a grant from REI which was sponsored by the Greater Houston Off-Road Biking Association (GHORBA). The grant was matched by The Woodlands Development Company and Precinct 3. Volunteers from the Woodlands Cycling Club and Boy Scouts of Ameria Eagle projects helped to finish clearing the trails. These volunteers also helped re-open the trails which were blocked when many trees fell during Huricane Ike. An additional five (5) miles of rustic trails are available at the Creekside Forest Drive trailhead in The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park.

George Mitchell Nature Preserve Grand Opening

The dedication and grand opening of the 1,700 acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve was held on the 33rd anniversary of the opening of The Woodlands, October 19, 2007, along with the dedication of The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park. A half-mile nature trail, one-mile down and back, was opened off of Creekside Forest Drive just west of Gosling Road. A rustic, two-mile hiking trail loop, which is being created off of Flintridge Drive, will open in late February. The George Mitchell Nature Preserve is a joint effort of The Woodlands Development Co., Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner Ed Chance's Office, The Woodlands Association and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Recreational Trails Grant Program.
