This stunning locale features over nine miles of maintained hiking trails. Forests, prairies, and wetlands make this destination perfect for nature lovers. Grab some friends and enjoy strolls through the clearly marked trails and admire panoramic views of Joe Pool Lake at the top. On the third Saturday of every month, join the Habitat Restoration and Trail Maintenance at Cedar Ridge event to join volunteers in removing non-native plants, maintaining trails, and working in the butterfly garden. It’s a great way to connect with others while serving the community.
