Anyone that follows my blog likely knows that I prefer hiking in the crisp mountain air to a body of water, like this hike to Sawtooth Lake, so metroplex hikes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area don’t exactly compare. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge.
History of Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge
Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge is located 11 miles northwest of Fort Worth. The nature area comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands was established in 1964. Owned and operated by the City of Fort Worth, the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge is one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States.HAPPY HIKING!
