This is the closest place to Dallas, that I'm aware of, where you can actually hike. However, it is nothing to write home about. It does allow you to get out of the big city and escape into nature, but it is largely flat and...More

This park and nature preserve is one of our favorite places to hike. Some of the trails are a real challenge and some are pretty easy. They are well marked and kept clean.

Yes, dogs are welcome! They even have a low to the ground water fountain for dogs by the restrooms. They will love this place.
