Winding through the gently rolling hills and along the lakes and waterways of Cross Creek Ranch are miles of hike-and-bike trails to explore and enjoy.
Trails also include:
Cross Creek Ranch boasts a boardwalk and nature overlook where residents can observe wetland plants, identify birds and wildlife, hone their photography skills and access nature trails. The boardwalk and viewing platforms provide an overlook of the community’s Polishing Pond, a 50-acre natural habitat and lush oasis that has become a permanent home for fish and turtles as well as a migratory stop for countless birds and wildlife.
Roughly the size of 48 football fields, the Cross Creek Ranch Polishing Pond also functions as an engineered water quality basin where water is filtered for reuse throughout the development for irrigation. Please watch this video for a closer look at our Polishing Pond and what it is doing to help our environment, courtesy of SWA Group, the architects of the project.

Award-winning Flewellen Creek is a 2-mile stream meandering through approximately 150 acres of Cross Creek Ranch. The carefully restored nature area is a balanced ecosystem for wildlife and a natural backdrop for amenities, including Arbor Park and the Flewellen Creek Disc Golf Course.
Cross Creek Ranch’s hundreds of acres of lakes reflect the natural beauty of the community and provide wonderful scenic views for the Fitness Center, Italian Maid Café and the hike-and-bike trail system. What’s more, a boat dock is located at the base of “The Hill,” a towering lakeside gathering place perfect for walking the dog, bike rides, picnics, amphitheater concerts and other community events.
If you’re looking for fun on the water, residents can enjoy non-motorized boating in one of our largest lakes as well as catch-and-release fishing.
