Enjoy the Habitat Hikes at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center

Offering a tranquil escape, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center plays a key role in protecting native plants and animals in the heart of the city. It welcomes over 400,000 visitors every year. There is much to see, and one of the best ways to explore is to enjoy the habitat hikes. Here are a few of the adventures you can discover near our Houston apartments:

Habitat Hike: Ravine

Stretching just under a mile, the ravine hike takes about 30 to 40 minutes. Along the way, you'll see the Bottomland Giant. This sycamore tree stands 120 feet tall. It boasts maple-like leaves, and during the fall months, you'll see round seed balls high in the branches. These seeds are a favorite among chickadees and goldfinches alike.

Habitat Hike: Woodland

Offering a fun 1.7-mile journey, the woodland hike features an area of pine forest as well as a more open area of hardwood forest. As you explore, look for the trumpet creeper vines. They wind around the pine trees and can live for decades. Look closely at the vines, and you may spot small holes made by yellow-bellied sapsuckers.

Habitat Hike: Prairie

The prairie hike offers a look into Houston's past. Generations ago, thousands of acres of grasslands and wildflowers covered the land that would become one of the country's largest cities. Early on in your adventure, you will see a loblolly pine tree on your left. On its base, you'll see a scar left by a fire that burned in the 1940s.

After enjoying these habitat hikes at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, grab a quick, delicious meal from one of Houston's best food trucks. You can sample waffles, brisket egg rolls, and more.
