The Hiking Trail Hiding In Dallas – Fort Worth That Will Transport You To Another World

Whoever said Texas is flat hasn’t hiked Cedar Ridge Preserve! It is a natural habitat of 600 acres encompassing about 10 miles of picturesque trails, and with an elevation of 755 feet, it is a slice of Hill Country in our own backyard!

Situated on the top of the White Rock Escarpment, an outcrop of the Austin Chalk geologic formation, the preserve has it all: wooded hills, beautiful views, and a terrain suited for various experience levels. The best part is that it is close to home! The entrance is located just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas, meaning nature lovers can escape from the city while being home in plenty of time for dinner.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
