Dallas, Texas Map

We add this on to the cedar brake trail for a longer hike at the Cedar Ridge Nature Preserve

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.

Bluebonnet Trail

98% shaded trail.
Trail loops.
9/10 mile.
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.

A mild incline in the beginning, but mostly flat. Very narrow trail. Not used very often I had to navigate a fallen tree. Made it more adventurous. Decent trail to run if you are nearby.

This one is awesome, I've been checking different ones, and this one is very maintained. Challenging loops.

It was poorly maintained, but I have to admit it was awesome and challenging. The signs need some work

1st hike and it was awesome!

One of Oak Cliff's best kept secrets. Only issues I have is the signage and trash. Besides that it is beautiful. Watch out for the bikers and bring water. Easy to get lost. The bicycle graveyard is located in the blue loop. You can see different ornaments hanging from the trees. Kind of creepy but fun. Great for pictures. Enjoy.
