Crighton Ridge is a tranquil community in Conroe, Texas located just 40 miles north of Houston and 5 miles north of The Woodlands, where you can enjoy the almost rural feel of large, wooded lots. Crighton Ridge offers convenient access to I-45 and the many restaurants, shopping areas, and activities of The Woodlands, Conroe, Spring, and other surrounding areas. The pleasures of Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico are less than 100 miles away.
The Crighton Ridge community is divided into three sections. There are two wooded parks, each with playground equipment, covered pavilions and picnic tables. The park in Section 1 has a picturesque pond with a waterfall and fountain. The park in Section 3 has a putting green. Residents of Crighton Ridge also have easy access to the River Plantation Golf and Country Club via a golf cart path between Sections 1 and 2.
Section 1 (79 homes) has lots that are a minimum of 1 acre and are on aerobic septic systems.
Section 2 (93 homes) and Section 3 (120 homes) have minimum ¾ acre lots and are on the City of Conroe’s sewer system.

Trendmaker Homes began investigating the area for development in 1997/1998 and, as a result, the Crighton Ridge Home Owner’s Association was incorporated in April of 1998. In 1999 the first residents moved into Section 1. By 2003 Section 2 was being built and homes were being started in Section 3. Sections 4, 5, and 6 (Now known as Crighton Woods) were planned for later development.
In late 2003, the Conroe City Council voted to annex sections 4, 5 and 6. At that time Crighton Ridge verbally pledged to voluntarily request annexation if, and when, the City of Conroe was able to provide water and fire protection. Crighton Ridge was voluntarily annexed in January 2011.
You may notice the different street names on the road that bounds Crighton Ridge on the north. For several years it seemed that every time a street sign went up the name was spelled differently. According to Texas House Representative Brandon Creighton, it is named for two early Conroe families who used to live along it. Both families pronounced their names the same way but spelled them differently. From I-45 to Highway 1314, the road is named for the same Crighton family whose name is associated with the Crighton Theater in downtown Conroe. At highway 1314, the road name changes to Creighton Road for the family who homesteaded in this area – the same family from which Brandon Creighton is descended.
Crighton Ridge is situated within the Conroe Independent School District – one of the most outstanding districts in the state.
