Precinct 4’s 100 Acre Wood Preserve contains nearly two miles of trails through rolling, forested terrain that connect with the nine-mile Cypress Creek Mountain Bike trail system in northwest Harris County.
The preserve currently features a one-mile, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible paved trunk line trail that extends from the existing Cypresswood Hike & Bike Trail at Cypress Creek and Jones Road to the YMCA facility at SH 249.
Borders of the preserve include Jones Road to the west, the Northwest Harris County Municipal Utility District 230 water treatment facility to the east, Cypress Creek to the north, and the Norchester Subdivision to the south.
Precinct 4 opened the preserve in April 2013 following the donation of land from Houston Endowment. Bayou Land Conservancy upholds a conservation easement on the property, assuring its continued protection. The preserve includes pocket prairies, wetlands, and forests featuring a variety of trees, such as mature post oaks, pine trees, American beautyberry, river birch, and American sycamore.
The preserve includes a new parking lot, located at the north end of West Cypress Forest Drive near Moorcreek Drive. Hikers and bikers can also enter the preserve through the D. Bradley McWilliams YMCA trail.
