Spanning 2,000 acres of gently-rolling terrain that’s surrounded by an abundance of nature, The Woodlands Hills is situated among the southwest corner of the East Texas Piney Woods, which consists of towering pine trees and lush hardwood forests.

While many of the health and wellness inspired amenities are adorned with planned landscaping, such as nearby the Activity Center in the 17-acre Founders Park and among entrances into neighborhoods, the area’s native flora can be seen nearby and within the community’s four parks as well as along the nature-laced hike and bike nature trails and surrounding forest.
