Dallas has its own "hill country" in the southwest corner of the city, and thankfully someone had the foresight to preserve it for the enjoyment of the community! This place is spectacular when the bluebonnets are in bloom, but can provide a mini-vacation any time.

I am addicted to this place. I had hiked many times and had led Hikes to the Preserve. This is one of the few maintained Hiking trails in the metroplex. Its crowded during the week ends but on week days its just good to be there.

My wife and I are from Colorado so we weren't expecting much from a hike in the Dallas area. We found Cedar Ridge on the hiking forums and they all said its the best place to hike so we tried it out. The hike starts out easy enough, beautiful walk through thick trees and shrubs. A half mile or so... More

Great place to hike in the Dallas area. You honestly forget you are so close to the city and can simply enjoy being outside. Brought my dog and we had a good afternoon.

This is my favorite hiking trail. Cedar Ridge offers several trails to choose from whether you are a beginner or someone who enjoys a challenge. It's a great place to hike by your self, with man's best friend or your family. The paths are well marked and the scenery is beautiful and relaxing. This is a well maintained and safe... More

This park has the most well maintained trails. Most trails are flat, but some incorporate hills and rocks with beautiful views. Dog friendly- my dog loves coming here with me because trails are more interesting for him. Also, restrooms on site!

When I want to get away and hike trails with a little bit of challenge and surrounded by trees, I head here every time. My favorite get away with a variety of trails and some great views of the lake. Dogs on leashes allowed, but no bikes. Best hiking I've found in the metroplex! We have taken our kids here... More

Cedar Ridge Reserve is my favorite spot in the DFW area. While you're hiking the trails you feel like you're hundreds of miles from the city, when in reality it's only about a 20 minute drive from downtown Dallas. Highly recommended for anyone who loves hiking or nature walks. Most of the trails are at least a little strenuous, requiring... More

This is our favorite place to go hiking in the cedar Hill area. The trails are very well marked. The landscape is pretty. There and many options for different types of hikes. There is no set "fee" but there is a recommended donation of $3 per visit. We just became members for a very low price and go anytime. The... More

Fun and lots to choose from, you can find different elements each time you come. Not far from downtown and really feels like hill country ish for this part of Texas which is flat and or mainly lake oriented.
