Quick getaway in South Dallas

The trail head and parking is at the adjacent Audubon [dog-less] Dogwood Canyon center. While dogs are NOT allowed in the Audubon facility, they ARE welcome on the Cedar Hill trail.

Albeit short, this trail is perfect when you want to take a short hike but still enjoy nature.  While you can hear the highway for the first and last quarter mile, the rest of the trail is relatively peaceful.

Only real problem with this trail is that it takes many weeks to dry out after significant rainfall.  Trying to hike this trail while muddy will be a miserable experience.
