Sand and Obstacles
SPRING CREEK MAY DAMAGE YOUR VEHICLE!
The wooded trails get very narrow and the branches may rub on
your vehicle or worse. Jeeps and the like don't have much
problems but wider and longer vehicles may have trouble
navigating through a few places. If your to scared to ruin that
pretty shine I'd stick to the beach. The wooded trails also have
a few areas that may be extremely muddy with no go-around.
Another common occurrence is the trail ending into a

down or wreck their vehicles attempting obstacles. There are large sand hills, water and deep
mud. One place is Devil's
Hole, It is a deep mud crossing that will suck up your
vehicle and make for an interesting recovery. Remember, always use common sense. Never do more than you are comfortable with. Always wear safety belts and use all appropriate safety equipment.
These trails change from season to season. Please be cautious of
deep water and hazardous drop offs.

property owners hate us back there, is because people keep

How to Get there:
doesn't work type Interstate 45 and 2920, Spring, TX into Mapquest,
get there and follow the directions below.
Assuming you are coming from the Houston area (Downtown) take
Interstate 45 North to the Spring / Tomball Exit (Splash Town).
The road is called 2920/Spring Cypress. Turn East at the
intersection , toward old town Spring. You are now on Spring
There will be a fork in the road up ahead so stay in
your left lane. Go left at the fork and you will be going
through the heart of downtown Spring. At the stop sign in
front of you are railroad tracks, to the left a small police
station. Go straight, across the railroad tracks, the road will
veer to the left, This road is called Hardy Road. Stay on Hardy
heading North for maybe 1/4
of a mile, it will go back across some railroad tracks and then
take a sharp right, back across the main tracks.
Right after you cross the
tracks, you will see a
road to the left. This road is still Hardy. Take that road all the way down to the
entrance. There are actually three entrances.
entrance is a
dirt road that is on the right as you go under the toll road.
There used to be a gate on this road and somebody has mowed it
over. This road will lead you to 2nd Beach.

guy who lives at the creek. Look for a sign on the right that
If you are towing or carrying your vehicle you may want to park
here and enter the trails from here.

the trail from the road. But somebody has already made a trail
over it. The trails to the right lead to 1st Beach and the
trails in front lead, well, to some more trails.
There's actually a
if you enter from
Rayford Sawdust. Just turn right at the Chevron if you are
heading east on Rayford. Follow it to the dead end and continue
down the hill. There is a pretty major creek crossing here and a
good uphill sand climb to get to the trails.
All of this information could change. I make no guarantee's on
this information's accuracy from month to month.
Trails and Good Luck!,
