Peckinpaugh Preserve is a large nature preserve located along Spring Creek. It is part of the ambitious Spring Creek Greenway Project and connects to the Old Riley Fuzzel Preserve on the other side of Riley Fuzzel Road. In the future, the Peckinpaugh Preserve will also be connected to Pundt Park on the other side of Spring Creek.
The Peckinpaugh Preserve includes the new Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center and leads you to a beautiful lake and a maze of hiking and biking trails that run along Spring Creek and through the woods.
I hiked the Peckinpaugh Preserve as a part of my longer walk through Spring, Texas. You can read my log of that hike here.
