Overview

This route provides easy to access to Meyer and Collins Park and is a pleasant and easy to navigate route.

Description

The Cypress Creek Greenway trail currently connects Meyer Park and Collins Park. There are opportunities for jogging, access to nature trails, and access to mountain biking trails.

This route also connects to the Cypresswood Cultural District with an art museum, library, and a trail leading up to a coffee shop.

The route is mostly paved, making for easy going. There will be a few places where the pavement breaks into a wide, natural surface, so be prepared for a bit of off-pavement travel.

There's not an overabundance of shade, so be prepared during the warmer summer months, and bring water and a hat!
