I always love this trail! Main path by pond is closed, so it detours around the far side and I actually like it better this way!

Our most frequented hike in Dallas. Just enough distance and hills to feel accomplished. The dog loves the stop at the lake about 0.5 miles into it. The Mountain bikers share the trail nicely enough but keep an eye out for them.

A beautiful trail in the middle of bustling DFW life. Brought my parter and 2 pups and by the end (3 mile loop) we felt like our nature fix was filled and had worked up a bit of a sweat. This trail is part of Cedar Hill State Park, with a 7$/adult entrance fee. The park ranger at the booth was very nice, gave us a map, and explained our best options! Do it!

Did the green loop! Good time! Saw a Rattlesnake! If you’re new to hiking and looking to practice before hitting more mountainous terrain this ones good, I’ll be doing the longer loops next time! Bring at least a gallon though, this trail is super dry!

Quite a few bikers to watch out for, but they’re all very polite. Trail was great; it’s well-maintained and mostly shaded. I would definitely do it again. Going 8 miles kicked our butts!

excellent moderate trail run with some ups and downs but nothing serious. many tree roots across Trail so watch your step! mostly shaded, thank goodness. remember that bikers travel clockwise and hikers / runners should travel counter-clockwise around the loops.

Great trail with plenty of turns and slight inclines/declines. Watch out for the roots in the ground. This area has frequent bouts of shade and sun. It does require a $7 per person entry fee.

l would rate this trail as on the high end of easy to low end of moderate as compared to other trails in the moderate rating.the reason for this is it has to many twitch backs that eliminate any aggressive upward climbing not once was I ever winded .

Nice trail. This is my first time here. I typically go with the grain on my first attempt on a new trail since the signage is easier to see that way. However this trail has great markings for hikers going against the grain. The trail is a good mixture of open, forest, twists and turns and ups and down. It is also well maintained. The only downside is the $7 park entrance fee. Also note that the trail route is extremely different in two spots compared to the trail map.

First, thanks to DORBA and Texas Parks Dept. DFW has had tons of rain since last fall. Expected trail to be overgrown but vegetation was trimmed back. Thanks! Of course all the rain, not just this year but the last few years, has resulted in roots, roots, and more roots on the trails. Definitely tougher going up grade and hitting those. But who wants it easy. Fun from beginning to end.

As of July 12, the trails are reopened. I called before I left, because the app still reports them closed. There are 3 Dorba paths. The green (3mile loop), the blue (8 miles)and the red (12 miles). The green Dorba path is narrow and shared with mountain bikers. Many of them Don’t give you warning when they are flying through....other than that, and some Trash on the trail...the 3 mile loop was great. End with the lake to get a great breeze towards the end of your hike.

It was definitely a soothing experience. Although there are no awe inspiring landscapes, it’s a calm meditative experience because there was not a lot of foot traffic when we went even if it was on a weekend midday.

I love taking my dog to this trail to wear him out. With 3 trail lengths to choose from, it's easy to adjust if you run out of energy before the trail splits. Call the state park the morning of you coming out to make sure the trails are open.

a great little trail for novice hikers and families with small children

Pretty trail. Needs some trash clean up and it would be perfect.

Brought my dog on this hike on a warm June day. It was very hot in the non shaded part and the flowers were so tall I couldn’t see if I was on the trail for a lot of the time. For being in the middle of Texas, this is a great hike! The views are really pretty.

Trail was in good shape today.

This is a nice little hike, good for families with small children and those bringing leashed pets. I haven't seen ducks at the Duck Pond, but the occasional Great Blue Heron shows up, which makes me smile. perfect weather at about 60 degrees this April morning!

The area looks beautiful and I drove over an hour to hike this trail. Unfortunately, the trail was closed and the park failed to indicate that the trail was closed on the website. It was clear that many other hikers and bikers were unaware of the closure. I hope to go back to this trail in the future when it’s clearly indicated as open.

Super easy, nice trail. Not overcrowded.

Definitely meant for biking, but it was the only trail open on my visit. A beautiful section of the lake visible right at the beginning, so that was really nice. I like that you can add on miles, picking the shirt, medium, or long trail.

We tried to go hiking but all of the trails were flooded. It didn't say anything about it on the park website. so if you're driving any sort of distance, I would suggest to call the park if it has been raining a lot. Other wise, the fall colors on that area are gorgeous.
