Little bit of forest, little bit of field, the North Pond trail meets up with the Meadow Loop.

Need to Know

Southwest Nature Preserve is 58 acres tucked away near Kennedale. Parking and admission are free and leashed pets are allowed. Facilities include interpretive signage, picnic tables, a water fountain, and a restroom at the parking area. Four ponds offer catch-and-release fishing, one with a concrete path and boardwalk leading to a pier. The majority of the trails are flattish sandy tracks through eastern Cross Timbers woodlands and meadows.

Description

North Pond Trail is not actually on the trails map at the parking area, but it's a well defined sandy track that skirts the pond and meets up with the Meadow Loop. It's narrow and sandy and goes through a little bit of woods and some grass fields, and the junction at Meadow Loop is a field.

Flora & Fauna

Birds, dragonflies, little bluestem, post and blackjack oaks, bull nettle, silverleaf nightshade
