This is definitely not a hard trail at all. High side of easy / low side of moderate at best. A good hike especially when combined with adjacent trails.

Tied with Cedar Brake for my favorite trail in Texas so far. Challenging trail with good elevation. If your children cannot clear 2 ft. obstacles it's probably best to skip this one.

A nice respite from the busy city life. Crowded on the weekends.

A fairly challenging trail that offers some great views. Crowded on nice weekends; come on weekday if you can.

Trail was awesome and worth it, I wasn't aware it was difficult and brought small children and a stroller but we made it. Looking forward to this trail again soon

Cedar Ridge Preserve is the best kept secret for hiking in the DFW area.

Pretty hike but found it to be extremely easy. No idea why it's rated hard. Cedar Brake was much more difficult and I think it's a moderate trail.

This trail is nice and relaxing and links you up to the 3 other trails the have a few more difficult spots.

Excellent trail. For a Dallas trail, this was pretty difficult. Bring water with you as you will need it.

Nice trail with some added hills and some bonus trails you can go on. Loved Cedar Ridge Preserve.

It was very cool, some parts are easy some others while your getting closer to the pond, it starts to get difficult and the last .2 miles are completely under the sun, no shadows at all. But it's worth it, when you reach the pond you can see all the turtles and fish swimming.
