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

must hike if you're going to 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 ar first, but quickly comes together, which is not an issue. Wish I had a map!

Trails are really confusing and not marked. More markers would make this a great trail. I could care less where it’s located or next door to.

the trail head is labeled to start across a heavily trafficked highway, not sure why they want you walk across a street as your start. I left before I started

the trails are not readily marked until about half way in, that means when you're trying to find your way out you get to walk in circles. there are many intersections that are not marked as well. the trails were all littered with trash and not spectacular views. easy walk

Nice trail. Very clean and well marked. Also quite a bit of shade which helps in this Texas heat.

Harvey traffic, the terrain is not easy, and dogs must be on leash.

I hate running on pavement, and the 5 miles I ran today are all pavement. not a great running trail, but nice, scenic walk or bike ride through the city. Nice by SMU campus.

great, but crowded on the weekends

Made the full loop recently. One of the many hydrating stops had a water mister which was perfect on a hot day.

This is walk. Not hiking as in a national park on a trail.

Nice trail with some good views. I would not rate difficult, moderate at best. If you want a more leisure hike this is for you.

To all you hikers that keep complaining, take a minute to think who maintains the trail.. (DORBA).
Then take another minute to figure out what does that mean. Hikers are more than welcome. but please no matter the park you go to. always stop at the trailhead and READ THE RULES!!!
most trails will ask hikers to go in the oposite direction so you can spot bikers from a distance and move aside.
thank you all for understanding.
have a great day!!
