Cedar Mountain Preserve
The Cedar Mountain Nature Preserve is a special use park that offers visitors a variety of interesting features. Located at 1300 W. FM 1382 adjacent to the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, this 110-acre preserve contains some of the highest elevations, approximately 700 feet above sea level, in Dallas County and features the uncommon convergence of limestone escarpment and blackland prairie. The convergence of these two distinct geological formations creates a habitat for plant and animal species usually found in east, west, and central Texas, creating a unique experience for visitors that cannot be found at any other preserve.
The Cedar Mountain Nature Preserve offers a variety of amenities including paved parking spaces, a 0.3 mile paved trail, and a 0.7 mile unpaved trail that allows visitors to explore the area’s varied and unique ecosystems.
