Trails System Updates:

Trail System construction has begun!

The 5.4-mile trail system has started construction!  Beginning at The Settlement of Cypress Creek at Telge and Spring Cypress they are now working on completing the loop around the detention pond. The Trail will then head along the bayou to Louetta Road.   The trail will then primarily run along the pipeline all the way to Fulkey Gulley. There will be a bridge over Fulkey Gulley as well as a trail south along the Gulley to Spring Cypress Road where there will be an underpass below the road.  This phase of the Trail system will connect with 10 of the 21 NWHC MUD 5 subdivisions. This Trail should be completed by the first half of 2021.  See the trail map in the NEWS tab.
