Road Trip to Cedar Ridge Preserve
There’s something about a road trip that brings out the inner child in me. And the weather we have had this winter/spring has been the perfect road tripping weather.
We had a wide open Saturday in front of us and our friends recommended hiking Cedar Ridge Preserve that is run by the Dallas Audobon society. SInce we love hiking new trails around the metroplex, we were totally on board.
From Plano, we took the George Bush toll road pretty much the entire way until we hit I-20 (easy peasy, so worth the tolls). We took the I-20 exit eastbound. As soon as we were up on top of the ramp, we could see the entire park system ahead of us . . . in an instant, the topography changes into rolling hills and lush greenery.
Its as if Dallas is far, far away.
Of course we took the furbabies, Bowden and Dutch. We’ll do anything to make them tired (and yes, we succeeded)
At the first trailhead you’ll find a map, take a snapshot with your phone to bring with you. We found our first stop, Cat Tail Pond.

Refreshing swimming hole with a mini waterfall made Bowden very happy!
We found ourselves walking in the middle of bluebonnets! This is the time to get those family pictures =)
Only 45 minutes away from Collin County, this is a great hiking excursion.
