One of the newest and most challenging mountain bike trails in the DFW area is Big Cedar Wilderness Trails. Located in an escarpment area, 15 minutes from downtown Dallas, on the edge of Cedar Hill, it boasts more than 9 miles of single track and jeep road trails and some of the best views in Dallas. Developed through a joint venture of members of DORBA (Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association) and Mountain Creek Community Church, the park has a competition level cross country race course and a downhill/freeride course to challenge the stamina and guts of all mountain bike riders. A ride here provides a much-needed escape from the daily office routine and makes you forget that you are close to the heart of the Metroplex.
