Time to Unwind and Exercise – On Foot and in Fresh Air

Taking a walk can do wonders for your well-being. The Woodlander encourages you to take advantage of the mental and physical benefits walking in nature can do for you by offering up its top 5 places for casual strolls for you and/or your immediate family.

Per the Center for Disease Control (CDC), groups of 10 or more are not allowed and social distancing of 6 feet apart must be maintained at all times in public spaces.

Top 5 Walking Spots:

Hughes Landing – Take the 1-mile boardwalk and sidewalk loop offering panoramic views of Lake Woodlands shoreline peppered with wildlife, public art and window shopping at one of the area’s hottest retail and restaurant destinations.

The Woodlands Waterway – Make your way down this nature-laden winding 3-mile landmark which boasts interesting architectural office buildings located at Waterway Square that serve as the home for many of The Woodlands’ major employers. Count the 15 distinctive art benches along your walk and look for the fun water features and mosaic paneled tunnels.

Town Green – Stroll around this rectangular shaped soft lawn that sits behind The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The flower garden is opposite the ivy labyrinth and a canopy of wisteria helps cover the outdoor hallway. Look for large public art bronze works in the shady parts of the garden.

George Mitchell Nature Preserve – The 1,700 stunning wild acres feature a 2-mile hiking trial loop (and 3 miles of bike paths) robust with flora and fauna.

Spring Creek Nature Trail – This 13-mile wilderness trail features the Pineywoods and the Gulf Coast Prairies and Marshes ecosystems on full display. Follow the meandering creek and see lush wetlands teeming with bird wildlife.

Again, when passing others, please adhere to the CDC guidelines for social distancing and not congregating in groups of 10 or more in public areas. Please be safe.
