Cedar Ridge Preserve
The beauty of Texas' nature can be experienced first-hand with a hike through this 630-acre (146-hectare) preserve. With guided and self-guided tours available along the ten miles of wooded trails, outdoor enthusiasts can wander up to the Escarpment Nature Preserve, the highest point in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Along the way you can view ponds, wildflowers and a butterfly garden before arriving at vistas and an observation tower. The trails vary in difficulty. All are natural terrain paved with rock, mulch, or dirt. They are designed for foot traffic only, and bikes or roller blades are not allowed. Hikes can last anywhere from 15 minutes to three hours, depending upon the trail selected. A snack bar, gift shop, and amphitheater are also located on the grounds.
Myself and my other half, love the quiet and scenery and the climb to the highest point in Dalllas area. We couldnt wait to buy and wear our t-shirts that are sold there. The very good people who attend the location and those who tred the trails are good people who seem to enjoy the peace and wonder of this planet. You must climb to the highest point which is almost 800 ft above sea level. This land was once the site of a prehistoric sea,and you will find evidence of that at the Fossil trail and the Red Oak trails. Ancient shells can be found there,that are over 100s of years old. History,peace,and health wth nature is all there to enjoy. We also state that you can enjoy volunteering a small time of your day to help maintain the reserve for future generations to enjoy,as we do.
