    Hello everyone!

    Looks like another cool weather is coming up this weekend. Forecast is low 60's.  Let's get out and enjoy this beautiful fall weather. I'd like to do a 5 miles hike, app. 2.5 hours.


    At an elevation of 755 feet, Cedar Ridge Preserve is a slice of the hill country just 20 minutes outside Dallas. Preserve is not-for-profit natural habitat of 633 acres featuring 10 miles of hiking trails, a native plant nursery, butterfly gardens, and picnic areas.

    If you are unfamiliar with this area please visit the park website for a full description. A map of the trails as a pdf file is available to download. (www.audubondallas.org)

    This is a recreational hike, and dogs and children are always welcome. But please note, the trails could be difficult for smaller ones (dogs and children), as there is a lot of up and down and some steep climbs. It is also required that dogs be on a leash while in the preserve. Trails are rocky and uneven in places, as well as steep, so please wear correct footwear.

    Please check this event listing one hour before start time for any possible changes, and for address and location. Its always helpful to print out this event as well as the location map, especially if you've never been here before. Please check comments at the bottom of the listing page in the "talk about this Meetup" section for any updates, for example about inclement Texas weather, carpooling requests, or other... Carpooling with me from Uptown/Downtown area is an option, and if any are interested, concerns, questions contact me. [masked])

    Great group of folks - all very interesting and fun to get to know. Preserve was clean and well maintained. Lots of choices for length and ease/difficulty of walk. Trails were well maintained. Loved it! Even with the 45 drive to get there, I would go again!
