Description

This trail begins directly after entering the preserve and exits to your west. The majority of this trail's path runs through a grassy upland prairie that is dotted with cedar trees. As most other paths in this remote preserve, the trails aren't worn down so just follow the nicely mowed path, courtesy of the DORBA (Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association) volunteers that help maintain these trails. This is a nice little side trail that adds some length to the overall trail, but is fairly open so remember your hat. Overall, it is a nice hike that skirts the western boundary of the preserve.
