Loved it out there today! Although there were lots of people out enjoying the January, 75 degree weather day in DFW, there were several trails to choose from, so it was all worth it! The Preserve had posted that the Cattail Trail was closed for now which is the one leading to the small lake, but we got very close... More

It is relaxing to come here for a good work out, picnic with famili and friends, walk with your dog or piton which I have seen often here.

A lovely walk off the beaten track. No one else there when we went. Parking good and felt safe,. Paths not too manicured which is just how I like it !

Beautiful park of lakes and streams. Easy to Difficult rated hiking. A great work-out if you are looking for that, or a easy stroll too. We saw a lot of cardinal birds. So pretty! Only a $3 donation to enter. Nice, clean bathrooms at the entrance. Beautiful views on top of the ridge. Peaceful place! So close to Dallas.

I'm almost reluctant to review this hidden gem; I've been coming here for over 20 years and I have mixed feelings about sharing. But it keeps getting better. Under the auspices of the Audubon Society, it has improved gradually and significantly, with new trails, more bird-friendly habitats, and better signage to keep you from getting off trail or on trails...

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
