Nice trail that has improved significantly over the last few years. Trail has some pretty nice inclines and winds it's way through a fairly dense cedar brake. Crowds are definitely an issue when the weather is nice and especially on weekends. Avoid completely within 3-5 days following a moderate rainfall as the mud can make for a less than nice outing. TIP: Hike when the temps drop into the 20's and 30's and you will just about have the trail to yourself.

Well-maintained, well-marked trail that's good for a one-hour walk. You'll encounter lots of cyclists, since a good part of the trail is a Dorba trail. But it's actually not as crowded as I would have expected (we walked here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon).

Close to Dallas, which is good. Not terribly exciting and lots of urban noise. Still, it’s a hike! A fair amount of trash along both trails we hiked.

great trails

It’s flat, boring, the trails aren’t well marked, and there’s quite a bit of trash. If you’re just looking for a place to walk your dog that isn’t the sidewalk on the side of a main road it’s fine.

If you like walking through the woods with no views and no excitement, then this trail is for you

It was okay. Accustomed to Arkansas trails so not accustomed to seeing trash on trail, and a weird voodoo looking area with license plates nailed to trees and a pink Christmas tree with a couple of chairs. Was possibly a homeless camp. just weird feeling.

Love the challenging trail. It’s very useful to measure your endurance over time.

Decent incline, some nice views, but pretty short. More of a walk in the woods than a hike. Very lightly trafficked, which my dog and I enjoyed!

This is a great urban trail and is heavily used by the citizens of Dallas! It’s not a wilderness hike in the Rockies, but it’s great, just the same!

Great hike, was muddy but fun

Is ok but too many aholes on road bikes who think they own the road,

Great to run and people watch. Easy on the knee as there are no incline.

Wonderful getaway from the city. Spurts of relatively steep sections but overall just an enjoyable option just 30 minutes from downtown.

Awesome place , awesome view , I had been their last Saturday , it was raining , the view was just something to watch out for. Nearer to the city and such a lush green landscape hard to find.

Beautiful views along the way. Quiet and serene.
Love hiking down there.

This is a nice trail in the middle Dallas. Every piece touches the lake where you can see the birds and activities.

I've hiked all the trails. Great trail system.

good walk

Only did half mile trail. But definitely liked it. However it is the busiest trails I have ever seen. No less than fifty cars in the parking lot. In the middle of the week 30 min. Before it closes.

great place to take the family and for runners and bikes. There are better trails out there for hiking though.

just another good hike at Cedar Ridge

favorite trail at Cedar Ridge. wife loves it when the bluebonnets are in bloom.

We were looking for a nice walking trail and this fit the bill. We did about 3 miles round-trip on the bike path. Picked up a couple pieces of trash, but the grounds were, overall, well kept.

Nice, easy walk with well maintained trails. It looks like separate walking & biking trails at first, but quickly comes together, which is not an issue. Wish I had a map!
