Hike and Explore W.G. Jones State Forest

Seemingly overlooked amongst the suburban sprawl lies W.G. Jones State Forest resting on over 1,700 acres near the intersection of Highway 242 and FM 1488.

Recreational opportunities include bird watching, hiking, horseback riding, biking, picnics, and wildlife viewing. W.G. Jones State Forest was purchased in 1926 and named after W. Goodrich Jones in 1948 who was considered the Father of Texas Forestry.

The Sweetleaf Nature Trail is just shy of a mile long and is a hiking/jogging path with a picnicking area along Rice Branch Creek. The main trail system is 15 miles long and can be traversed by bike, horseback, or foot. The forest and recreation areas are open daily, and there is no camping on site. The gates close each evening at dark. To use the amenities of Jones State Forest, park-goers must sign-in at the entrance gate.

Jones State Park is littered with red-cockaded woodpecker clusters that roost sites in living trees. The red-cockaded woodpecker is one of two woodpecker species protected by the Endangered Species Act. Among the other wildlife population at the Jones State Forest that can be observed include bats, bluebirds, bees, and butterflies.

For readers interested in Geocaching, there are at least seven noted geocaches located within the State Forest limits. Check out the picture for more information on the whereabouts.

Picnic at Northshore Park

Northshore is perhaps best known for their hosting of the Concert in the Park series that runs from spring to fall each year and utilizes the stage and pavilion for performances.

Northshore Park offers ample green space to unfold a blanket and enjoy a day in the park. The park also features a public ramp for launching non-motorized boats on Lake Woodlands. In fact, the Rowing Club of The Woodlands calls Northshore Park home and has since 1989.

Also located in the seven-acre park are play areas for the kiddos, two 15’ x 24’ pavilions with electricity, five picnic tables, two barbecue pits and of course a stage with electricity to pump out the live music sounds of the Concert in the Park on Sunday nights. Side Note – For another view of the concert, head over to the boat ramp that is always open during the Concert in the Park.

There are plenty of opportunities to fish from the shore or take out a small boat on the lake. If fishing is not your cup of tea, take to the sand volleyball court also located within the confines of the park. In any case, Northshore Park is perhaps one of the most well known parks in The Woodlands, and has been a staple of local and community events since 1987. Check it out today!
