Things to Do

As you approach the park, you can access it via a bridge over Peach Creek. This park offers tons of enjoyable activities, including hiking and biking, kayaking, and even 13 miles of equestrian trails. Visitors must bring their own bikes, watercraft, and horses with them as there is not a place to rent any of these.

This park is heavily forested. That means that you will have the chance to find tons of unique snakes and animals. However, as a result, it’s also important that you remember to be careful. Always wear pants when hiking, as well as closed toed shoes.

The waterways are known to change rapidly, so check with the park service to understand conditions and then determine if you should go out.

There is no way to get to Lake Houston from this park, however you may used canoes to travel Peach and Coney creeks.
