Warning - trail closes at 5 pm! Not open on Mondays. We will definitely go back to explore the trail when it's open. The nature play area near the parking lot is really neat for little kids.

I think this is as good as it gets in the Dallas area! Usually crowded on nice days with a mix of hikers, runners and dogs.

Some mild inclines. Trail is very clearly marked. Has a rain shed, a lookout hut, and a few benches along the way. Even for a mildly hot Dallas day this trails shade was amazing.

Living in downtown Dallas, this is my getaway. I go here before most people have woken up and it's quiet and serene. If you wait much past 8 am on weekends, it's the place to be apparently. The best run I've had there was a rainy morning and maybe only saw 1 or 2 other people once out on the trail. It's definitely a good, challenging run in a unexpected location.

on Cedar Brake Trail

Visited on a Saturday a few months ago and though there were lots of people in the resting/trailhead area, we didn't encounter as many of them on the trail we chose (several options). It was rather empty and the reason we figure this happened was because it was as the longer distance trail. It was perfect, very challenging. We eventually got to an area with a pond where we sat and rested, and also a tower we were able to climb and have a view of what I believe is Joe Pool Lake.
