To-Do Map

Great starter trial if you want to explore taking it up as an add in or trail running!

Hard to believe you’re in Texas when you’re on this trail. Good trail diversity with many beautiful water views.

Only did half mile trail. But definitely liked it. However it is the busiest trails I have ever seen. No less than fifty cars in the parking lot. In the middle of the week 30 min. Before it closes.

just another good hike at Cedar Ridge

don't miss this one. great hike.

Super easy hike! Wish it was longer

Should be rated at Easy. Great solo walkabout. No trash. No alligators.

Scoped this place out for my son’s Cub Scouts. Overall, it’s a nice set-up. We enjoyed the views, with lots of trees and rugged terrain. In some areas there was a lot of trash. We came across a sleeping bag and two sets of clothes, undergarments and all. Not sure where the people belonging to those clothes were.

This trail is marked “closed” due to flooding. The Ranger I spoke with said there was no timetable regarding repairs or reopening.

This is the perfect place to visit if you want to get in a good hike and breathe in good air. The beauty of the green earth, the trees and the animals is humbling.

Good hiking trails and decently tough too. Great views of the dam, but quite a bit of trash. Broken bottles along the way too so wear good shoes and be careful with a dog.

my fiance and I come every single Sunday! he bikes while i hike and it's just beautiful.

Nice area and hike. I am new to hiking but in good shape, and Im so mad I just discovered this place...

Heavily traveled trails. Lots of people blasting music.
Having said that, it’s nice hiking with elevation gains and losses throughout. It’s the hilliest part of the DFW metroplex.

This is my favorite place (so far) in NTX to trail run! So many challenging elevation changes, the air smells like cedar, it’s scenic, and I love encountering other runners on the trail. Bring real supportive trail running shoes!, even if you’re hiking, this loop is not for the faint of heart. Great bird watching & place to get your heart rate elevated.

Nice trails, but heavy traffic.

Love this place ❤️

First timer on this trail. I traveled SOBO to the end and returned via the road. The first part of this very well marked trail had quite a bit of prairie runs - not my cup of tea - the last half of the trail did include mostly forested areas. The elevation changes offered some challenge, but it’s nothing an average fitness level hiker can’t handle. I’d give it a difficulty level of 3/5. The trail had very light traffic...only saw a woman + her dog, a couple, and a man + his two young boys. Would recommend treating your clothes with your choice of insect repellent because there are stretches of the trail that are very narrow; so, you will be brushing against foliage along the way.

love hiking here has options different Trails.

breathtaking,everyone we meat on our hike was amazely nice. The sites we saw were so beautiful and relaxingthat, that before we new it we had walked 11mails.

Very short trail but cool. At the north end there is a nice rock climbing area. We did this trail twice and also did the purple trail on the other side of the lake.
Nice State park.

We did the purple trail and the penitentiary trail twice..about 9.5 miles total. The temp was over 100 when we finished. I really liked the park and the lake and rock climbing options make it a good destination for a day or weekend. it's only about an hour from Fort Worth.
We will use this place again.

Very nice scenery! Kids loved it!!!

stay on pavement or take primative trails, Wildscape is terrificin hot summer days

A surprisingly good trail that I never knew existed. Lots of up and down and rocky terrain. The trail and weather combo made it a very good workout. My wife and I hiked it on 6/24/18 and our total distance on outer loop was about 5.7 miles. Take plenty of water. Its within a State Park so there is an entry fee. All Trails app was exact but trail is really not marked very well with signs but is an obvious trail for most of it. Map at office doesn't show outer loop.

Not bad for the ride. A lot of inclines and turns. Give it a try. I went on the 3 mile course twice, next time I’ll try the 8 mile
