Cedar Ridge Preserve

Just southwest of Radius at Turtle Creek, you’ll find Cedar Ridge Preserve. Showcasing gorgeous wildflowers and stunning views, you’ll want to bring a camera to capture it all. With miles of trails surrounded by wooded areas, you’ll find a trail for every level of experience. With impressive wildlife, Cedar Ridge is also a popular spot for bird watchers!

Oak Cliff Nature Preserve

Oak Cliff Nature Preserve features a variety of terrain, providing a moderate but exciting experience. Plenty of inclines and wooden paths keep it interesting, as well as bridges and natural water features for a view of the state’s natural beauty. Only a mere 15 minutes away, you’ll come back to this preserve over and over.  

Boulder Park Trail

Great for hikers and runners but heavily favored by bikers, Boulder Park Trail is nestled along the South Prong River. It gives visitors lovely glimpses of the local foliage and wildlife. Beautiful year-round, it’s a unique, secluded location that travels through beautiful forests and peaceful clearings. Be aware it’s 12 miles from start to finish, so pack some trail mix and plenty of water.

So whether you’re in the mood for a nice stroll, a quick run, or an all-day expedition, the nature preserves in Dallas are some of the best hiking amenities available.
