      Big Cedar Wilderness Trails is located atop one of the most breathtaking escarpment areas in North Texas. Boasting the highest elevation in the city of Dallas, BCWT winds through cedar and hardwood forest and descends quickly into a valley in a dramatic elevation change. The valley consists mostly of mesquite trees and cactus. At this time, BCWT has ten+ loops ranging from beginner to advanced. They all come off and return to the main trail called Ranger (white). Each is marked by colored arrows. More trails are under construction.
