The Old Riley Fuzzel Road Preserve is a large nature preserve along Spring Creek that encompasses several ponds, including Alligator Pond, wooded areas, a canoe launch, and a system of dirt trails.
With regards to the trails, there is "more than meets the map". What I mean by that is there are numerous trails that diverge and converge through the preserve, some which lead you to a dead-end. The signage in the park is almost non-existent and printed maps are not available, so you end up doing a lot of exploratory hiking to figure out where a particular trail branch goes.
The Old Riley Fuzzel Road Preserve connects you to the Peckinpaugh Preserve on the other (south) side of Riley Fuzzel Road and is part of the greater Spring Creek Greenway Project. The Old Riley Preserve also connects you to the Herman I. Little, Jr. Memorial Channel III-F Hike & Bike Trails to the north.
I hiked the Old Riley Fuzzel Road Preserve as a part of my longer walk through Spring, Texas. You can read my log of that hike here.
