Come join us for the first (of many) hikes on
Sunday, March 3, 2013 at Cedar Ridge Preserve
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. To view the General Rules and Regulations from the Dallas County Park and Open Space Program, click here.
We wil be doing the Cedar Break Trail (seen here) , a 1.7 mile hike rated moderate difficulty, and then depending on the mood of the group we can try a more difficult one. Afterwards we can head to grab some lunch for those interested.
What you should bring:
- Comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty
- Appropriate clothing for the weather
