Hike: DORBA Trail (Green) and Talala Trail combo, Cedar Hill State Park, Cedar Hill, TX
Weather: warm, upper 70s, sunny
Hikers: Ian and Court
Length: 3.92 miles combined
We got out to the trail a little after noon because Court had to get up early and go to her surgery rotation that morning. She was supposed to be done by 9, but they kept her there till almost 11, so we had to adjust the hike a bit. This was ok because she was a tired girl.
We ended up doing the 3 mile loop of the DORBA trail, the green loop, and then a quick 1 mile out and back on the Talala Trail to an overlook of Joe Pool Lake. The weather was great, especially considering it would get down to the teens the next night. Early spring in Texas has crazy weather.
The trail was a little greener than the last time I hiked it, but the trees were all still bare. Hoping to come back later this spring or summer and get the whole 12 mile loop in.
