Best trail system around, hands down.

Made it about halfway down (very muddy) trail when it dead ended into water. Trail was okay, nothing particularly interesting other than some short side trails. Bugs weren't terrible, but it was in the low 60s. It wasn't bad, but nothing worth coming back to.

Love the challenging trail. It’s very useful to measure your endurance over time.

A private oasis amongst a sea of concrete!

I love this trail! So glad I found it!

Hello twins. ;)

To all of the hikers who think this trail would be better without all of the mountain bikers, this trail wouldn't exist if not for the bikers. DORBA (Dallas Off Road Bike Association) created and maintains the trail. Thank the bikers as they pass you for providing such a gem in the DFW metroplex.

This is my new go-to trail with my dog. Free to get in during the day at the Murrell Park entrance. I would consider this a mountain biking trail that allows hikers. Lots of bikes! Make sure you don’t have headphones in so you can hear the bikers coming up behind you. Everyone has been very friendly when passing and let you know how many are behind them and when it’s clear to keep walking. Definitely worth exploring!
The trail is narrow and one way with spots to turn around if you don’t want to do the whole loop.

Great trail, will definitely be back. Happened upon this one because the first trail we went to was closed. Bike traffic, but nothing bad, all bikers were courteous. Walked about 7 miles of the trails today, will more than likely go back next weekend and do a different portion.

Way too many mosquitoes as a result of recent rains and warm weather made it unpleasant. Even covered with bug spray we didn’t make it far before turning back. Will try again when the temps drop. Saw a group of hikers turn around almost immediately—now I know why the parking lot was empty even though it was a beautiful day.

Last year, I would have given this trail 6 stars, but I went out several weeks ago and the trails are just overcome by bikes to the point there is backup everywhere. The pace of the trail is slow for the reason when you are on foot since you are always getting off the trail to let the next ten bikers through. This was my favorite trail up until this year as the trails seem narrower and less runner and pedestrian friendly. I think they probably need to think about reclassifying it as a trail for bikers only.

However, with that said, the trails are always clean and those in the park seem to respect the surroundings and keep the site as they found it.

Awesome place , awesome view , I had been their last Saturday , it was raining , the view was just something to watch out for. Nearer to the city and such a lush green landscape hard to find.

Nice place. 4 different trails. Wooded to grassland. Went after rain and boots got caked with dirt/mud. Had to stop several times to clean them off. Saw deer tracks. Saw big cottonmouth in swampy area.

Great trails, not difficult but still had elevation. Beautiful scenery all around!!

Great trail! Would do
It again. Worth the time to go! You do not feel you are in the city!

I've hiked all the trails. Great trail system.

Indian creek was so refreshing and enjoyable after the trek . Good concrete trails and natural trails available to explore .

Great trail system, but not recommended when wet!! The higher ground trail isn’t that bad but lower levels hold moisture well making for a messy ride. I can’t wait to ride when a little drier. p.s. Why is there a mountain bike sitting in some brush on the trail to the west?!

enjoyed what I was able to do, but it is severely overgrown after about a mile and a half. I switched over to the trail on the other side because there was no way around the dense overgrowth. there is also an excessive amount of trash on this trail. if I was out to hike for beauty, it would have bugged me. but since I was just trying to run through, it wasn't terrible.

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.

Very easy trail. About 85% of it is under shade.

just another good hike at Cedar Ridge

$10 for a 3.8 mile hike. don't waste your $$. lots of better trails nearby

Really nice and well maintained trails. Next time I come, I definitely will give myself more time to explore.

Awesome place to get a glimpse of what the woods can bring. Peace and quiet. Love the trails and scenery. Be on the watch out for the bikers!

I really liked these trails. Had my dog with me and we completed it in an hour and a half. Lots of mountain bikers but they were courteous and alert you.
