Cedar Hill State Park - DORBA Unit Take to the trails for adventure! TRAIL DIST TIME DIFFICULTY DESCRIPTION DORBA TRAIL (LONG) 12 miles Biking: 2 hours Hiking: 6 hours Challenging Named for the Dallas Off Road Biking Association, three consecutive trails were built by mountain bikers. Intense riding crisscrosses over 1,000 acres of prime mountain bike landscape. Remnants of historic Texas Blackland Prairie provide important habitat for prairie wildlife and migratory birds here at Cedar Hill. The clay-like consistency of the soil becomes very tacky when wet. In order to prevent erosion along the trails, they’re often closed on rainy days. Be sure to check with the office for any trail closures! DORBA TRAIL (MEDIUM) 8 miles Biking: 1 hr. 20 min. Hiking: 4 hours Challenging Covering 8 miles of trail, our blue loop is perfect for that dedicated hiker or biker. Remember, hikers should travel counterclockwise, while bikers travel clockwise. DORBA TRAIL (SHORT) 3 miles Biking: 30 min. Hiking: 1 hr. 30 min. Challenging One of our most popular hiking trails, this route offers views of the lake and plenty of shade. At 3 miles, it’s also more rugged and challenging than some of our other trails. STAYING SAFE KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Prepare for sun and heat. Wear sunscreen, insect repellent and appropriate clothing/hiking shoes. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Your body quickly loses fluids when you’re on the trail. Bring a quart (32 oz.) of water per hour of activity. Bringing your furry-friend? Don’t forget water for them, too! TELL OTHERS WHERE YOU’LL BE. If possible, avoid exploring alone. Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return. WEAR A HELMET. When biking, always ride to your skill level. Wear a helmet to protect yourself in case of a crash. TRAIL ETIQUETTE Trash your trash. Keep the park natural. Pack out all of your trash and Leave No Trace. Leave feeding to nature. Feeding wild animals will make them sick and more likely to cause harm to people. Pick your path. Bicyclists travel clockwise, while hikers should travel counterclockwise on these trails. Be courteous! Cyclists yield to hikers. POTENTIALLY HARMFUL PLANTS AND ANIMALS LIVE HERE. You’ll see them more easily if you stay on trails. BRING A MAP. Keep an eye on trail signs to help orient you in case of an emergency. FOR EMERGENCIES, PLEASE CALL 9-1-1.
