FM 1382 Hike & Bike Trail
This Hike and Bike Trail construction is a collaborative effort (funding) between TxDOT, Dallas County, grant funding through NCTCOG and the City of Cedar Hill. The project was coordinated in conjunction with Texas Parks and Wildlife, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, and Newman Academy.
This project will complete another section of long term-planned North-South Core Trail as identified in the City of Cedar Hill 2012 Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space Visioning Master Plan.
