This challenging 6.5-mile out-and-back trail climbs through shaded canyons and patches of yucca to a panoramic ridgetop view of Lake Worth. The Fort Worth Nature Center’s diverse 3,600 acres include native tallgrass prairie and deciduous forest of oaks, cottonwoods, and pecans. The hike passes projects created by 1930s-era workers for the Civilian Conservation Corps and offers abundant wildlife, including white tailed deer and coyote.

This is some great hiking! No bikes allowed which is good. The only thing about this trail that I don't care for is you can lightly hear and see the traffic from the hilltops. I like feelings I'm away from the city. $5 per person and it has become my favorite local spot so far.
