“Combining all three DORBA Loops at Cedar Hill State Park is an entertaining 12-mile route.”— Mike Williams
If you'd like a shorter outing, stay left at the first cutoff trail at about 1 1/4 miles and complete the three-mile DORBA Short Trail or take the second cutoff trail to the left at about the four-mile mark and enjoy the eight-mile DORBA Medium Trail.
The trail is not difficult, but does have a few short, steep, and/or eroded sections. There are facilities at the trailhead, but none on the trail. There is no water available along the trail, so be sure to bring your own!
At the trailhead, be sure to bear right and run the trail counterclockwise so that you'll be facing oncoming bike traffic. The trail is maintained by the Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association and is a popular place to ride. I avoid taking the trail on weekends and holidays.
The trail winds through stands of cedar and hardwood forest as well as grasslands along the shore of the lake. There are benches every mile or two if you want to take a break and it is quiet enough to hear the sounds of nature.This is a fun outing along a very pretty trail!
