Cedar Ridge Preserve, come join us for a fun hike

This has become one of my favorite hiking spots in DFW and I thought it would be a good first hike of the year. At an elevation of 755 feet, Cedar Ridge Preserve (formerly the Dallas Nature Center) is a slice of the hill country just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. Cedar Ridge Preserve is a natural habitat of 600 acres featuring about 9 miles of trails, native trees, grasses and wildflowers, butterfly gardens, limited picnic areas and wild mammals, birds, insects and reptiles. CRP has been managed by Audubon Dallas since April 2003 by charter from the Dallas County Park & Open Space Program and the City of Dallas. Comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty Water Appropriate clothing for the weather. Also don't forget to bring water bottles. Please keep in mind that there is some slight altitute changes. A bare minimum of cardio is needed. (This meetup may be cancelled/rescheduled depending on the weather. I'll be keeping up with it leading to it)

    Beautiful hike! And thank you Tyrone for picking a shaded trail! The hike has inspired me to check out the trails around Lake Grapevine and other areas I heard about as we bantered on our hike. Tyrone/Joe--have a great climb/hike on your upcoming trips ;)

    It was a good hike and the shade kept it from feeling uncomfortably hot. It didn't feel like we were in Dallas at all. To those who missed it, you really missed it!

    Hi Tyrone - just curious - approximately how far will we be hiking, and at how fast a pace?
    Looking forward to this.
