Join us for a hike at Cedar Ridge Preserve in Dallas.
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.
What you should bring:
Comfortable shoes, "if you have hiking shoes" even better, that you don't mind getting dirty, water, snacks and appropriate clothing for the weather.
Please keep in mind that there is some slight altitute changes. 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. Please check the meetup page the morning of for updates.
