Favorite place around here to hike. Out there with my dogs several times a week, all seasons.
Beautiful trail, but a little bummed at the price tag to get in, considering most places are free. It's a reserve though, so I get it. Still 5 stars because the trails are great, lots of families and groups out there. Saw LOTS of birds, one snake, but no crocodiles :( I was out there with my 4 & 2 y/o and they loved it! I preferred the Greer Island route to Canyon, as the Canyon is narrow and steep in some places and Greer has lots of forks in the trail for the wanderer in you :) great overall experience!
Fun, scenic, good workout, lots of ups and downs, 3.25 mile trail one way, 6.5 mile out-and-back. Lake vistas are excellent!
Good workout. Lots of ups and downs, great views. This is 3 miles one way, though, not 1.8.
If you like a good workout while hiking, this one's for you! The trail is primarily hills with lots of steps thrown in. Absolutely gorgeous views can be seen on many different spots on the trail. There are also many CCC out buildings that are no longer in service, but the buildings remain. If you start at the parking lot and make your way through, toward the end of the trail you'll see a smaller trail jut off to the left, this trail leads to the Broadview Park CCC site. Overall, very good, a bit intense at times, trail!
Fort worth's best kept secret is the Fort Worth nature refuge. Lots of good hiking in the refuge but the canyon ridge trail is the most difficult of them all. Lots of different terrain to maneuver through with hills and more hills. At one point there is a set of 63 steps to go up or down or both depending on how you go. A great hike if you have plenty of water and some good shoes!
There are some geocaches out here too!
Incredible! Very technical and a lot of elevation change. One can start at either trailhead and run the paved road back to your car or do it as an out and back. Also connects with other trails in the Nature Center.
