Parks & Trails

All NRH Parks and Trails are currently open. Please use proper social distancing and stay at least 6 feet away from those outside of your household, avoid large crowds, and it is suggested that you wear a face-covering in public and wash your hands often.

Below are tips from the CDC and the National Parks and Recreation Association about using park facilities and amenities as they reopen:


  • Visit parks that are close to your home.
  • Prepare before you visit by bringing your won water and hand sanitizer.
  • Know the CDC guidelines.
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others ("social distancing") and take other steps to prevent COVID-19.
  • Adhere to all park specific guidelines and follow all posted signage.


  • Visit parks if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19.
  • Visit crowded parks/areas.
  • Participate in organized activities or sports that involve contact with other participants.
  • Gather in groups or congregate with any individual that is not in your household.

More information can be found at We still encourage the community to remain cautious and make the best decisions for yourself and your family’s health. Be safe. Be Well.

Social Distancing in Parks

Share the Trails. Know the Rules. Have Fun. BE SAFE.

Share the Trails Be SafeWhile the Coronavirus Pandemic has brought many difficult challenges to our lives we have seen our community embrace their trails with a significant increase in use throughout NRH.  Our hope is that you will continue, even beyond our current circumstances, to utilize trails for enjoyment and exercise throughout the days and months ahead. NRH has over 30 miles of hike and bike trails incorporating access points on road, in parks, and through residential street connections.

With this increased use we ask all drivers, walkers and bicyclists to be mindful and educated on responsibilities of sharing the trails and roads safely especially at roadway crossings. Safety on and near the roads is more than following the speed limit and looking both ways before crossing a street. While these are two of the most important things to do, there’s more to understanding how people biking, walking and driving should interact together.

Help your friends and family be familiar with safety, signage and other markers throughout the trails and roads.  With many of our younger community using the trails, some for the first time, it is a great opportunity to educate on safety for all.  Please visit the Lookout Texans Safety Campaign for comprehensive and helpful tools to educate yourself and others to enjoy all modes of travel safely throughout our community.  See you on the trails!
