Explore: Hiking at Cedar Ridge Preserve

Come join us for the first (of many) hikes on

Sunday, March 30, 2014 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

Water

Appropriate clothing for the weather

By attending this event you agree to our attendance policy located HERE .

Please keep in mind that although a relatively easy hike 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)

    Well I, like a lot of other people, got lost because my GPS sent me closer to Cedar State Park (who were not helpful at all in directing me to the correct location) and by the time I found the correct area, I didn't know where everyone was. I ended up hiking on the same trail anyway (which was nice), but still never found anyone.

    The preserve accommodated our large group really well and I think everyone had a great time. Omar kept the group together and made sure everyone had a good time. Met some new friends and got some exercise. Couldn't ask for more!

    It was a good meetup. I just wish it would have been easier to find since I hadn't been. GPS failed me. :-(

      Yeah. The location and time are fine. Don't worry about gas money. It's not that far.

    Hey everyone, looking forward to tomorrow specially as the weather should be perfect! Just the usual reminders to press keep your RSVP up to date so I know who to expect. Also, please show up on time. We'll start the hike around 10:10 am, and once in the trails I will not be answering my phone.

    Hey all, for anyone interested in carpooling let's meet at the Wal Mart on 2305 N. Central Expressway at 9:20 (so we can leave at 9:30). If you don't want to drive bring a couple of bucks to pitch in for gas. Please post under this comment ONLY if you're planning on carpooling.
