came back from Tuscon where I was hiking in the mountains on very difficult trails. I gave this a 4 because this is about as good as you will find in DFW area.

Definitely a little more than I bargained for, but I made it through the multitude of elevation changes! Beautiful trail and lots of scenic views. Wide, clean paths and excellent signage/markers. I felt so old as people ran past me or even lapped me, but I was still out there and finished the trail (plus another one) so I am very happy. Glad to have visited today. Watch out for tree roots and slippery rock surfaces.

A really enjoyable moderate hike. Quite a lot of elevation change for North Texas. Highly recommend.

We did Cattail pond trail to cedar brake trail to escarpment trail. Beautiful day with lots of people on the trail.

moderate / difficult terrain. very hilly

Hello old friend! Lived in Dallas 25+ years ago and ran this every weekend. Had a chance to run it again on a cool December morning. Still pretty, tons of wading birds and friendly people. Noticed runners these days stick to the road and not the old trail. Old trail for this guy!

Lots of traffic but great elevation changes for Dallas.

This loop combines multiple trails at Cedar Ridge Preserve for the perfect distance for us. A lot of uphill steps by Dallas standards with some nice views (again by Dallas standards) as well.

This trail was perfect for us as beginners. Was just enough to get our blood pumping. Was really lovely. A good number of people out and about, but we still enjoyed a lot of alone time on the hike. There was a little bit of fall color to take in, too :)

Nice day to get out of town and see some nature while in Dallas — variety of trails was fun — did a touch over 4 miles and saw lots of the park

I am at this lake just about every day. It’s a great place to do a short leisurely walk or a more intense workout running or riding bikes (you can even rent paddle boards and kayaks here). There are a lot of water fountains around the lake but I think they are turned off right now for the winter, so bring a water with you.

This is a good urban loop trail where planes intersect with rowers and walkers.
