Cedar Ridge Preserve (the park this trail is located) is one of the best places to hike, walk, or trail run! They have several trails with varying difficulty levels and distances. The best part about this place is you're not competing with bikers; no wheels (of any kind) allowed on trails.
This particular trail is fantastic! Signage and distance markers are clear. Trail is well maintained and clean. Park has restroom and water facilities. Excellent scenery and views. Had some steep parts, but they were well marked and maintained. Really enjoy hiking this trail with my dogs!! Make sure you take a water bottle, and bug repellant.
Always a lot of people in the weekend. But during the week, it's great.
One of the best trails in DFW. Can be difficult at times but it's pretty out there. A few good views and some pleasant creek crossings.
Bring lots of water! It may be mostly shaded but it's a workout hiking. A plus side is no bikes to share the trail with.
Very fun trail. Cedar Break trail is one of several trails in the Ceder Ridge Preserve trail set. Once you park, the main walkway in has a map that shows many trails all ranging from easy to hard. One of the trails named the "butterfly trail" may even be good for people with disabilities. Anyway, Cedar Brake trail is awesome and is about 2 miles long (last marker states 1.9 and it's near the exit trail head). However, be prepared from parking lot walking to Cedar Brake, completing Cedar Brake and walking back to the parking lot to be a total of 2.5 miles.
Guys also PLEASE consider donating to this park / trail system. There is a suggested donation of $3, but I'm sure ANY bit helps. Drop a dollar in it if you can't spring $3. Heck drop $.25. Every bit helps. I've seen people there working that system hard providing an awesome trailing experience for everybody. If you can donate more - donate more! :) Think of those who are chopping trees and brush back, mowing certain areas, carrying rocks, gravel, and rebar stakes and boards into that system and making it nice for us. :)
The parking is "texas farm road" type of gravel (white dusty stuff).
It was very cool, some parts are easy some others while your getting closer to the pond, it starts to get difficult and the last .2 miles are completely under the sun, no shadows at all. But it's worth it, when you reach the pond you can see all the turtles and fish swimming.
