Cypresswood (Collins Park)

Cypresswood Trails are one of the jewels of Houston's trail system. An eight mile out-and-back consisting of numerous stacked loops give riders a well constructed and maintain trailed system in Houston's northern suburbs. They typically drain faster than most of the other trails in Houston, snaking along the banks of Cypress Creek from Collins Park to W. Strack Road. Cypresswood is a favorite of riders of many skill levels. Trail markers are well maintained and finding your way on the trails is fairly easy. Difficult obstacles and their bypasses are all clearly marked.
