Texas definitely has some of the most beautiful parks that you’ll ever see in your whole life, and they're perfect for hiking and camping. You'll enjoy beautiful lakes and scenery, and just the outdoors in general, better than you ever could elsewhere, in my opinion.

That said, Texas is also a huge place, and if you're inclined to believe in hauntings, there's a lot of turf for ghosts here, including in our parks.

There are places in Texas where superstition runs rampant, and haunted myths are talked about matter-of-factly. I’ve never been a person who believed in urban myths, but once you get the backstory on certain places in Texas you can’t help but believe that evil lives there.


Cedar Ridge Preserve is a beautiful, scenic park with very rich wildlife only 20 minutes from Downtown Dallas and, features a 9-mile walking trail that ranges from easy to difficult. It can be a perfect experience for someone who wants to go hiking, birdwatching, or just enjoy the wildlife without going too far into the wild.


According to Only in Your State, Cedar Ridge Preserve has some weird stuff going on.

For example, there's reportedly a transparent ghost dog who roams the park, searching for its former master. There don't seem to be any reports of the ghost dog attacking anyone, but I still don't think I'd react well to seeing the little guy trotting at me on a trail at night.

Some visitors have reported that while standing on a certain bridge in the park, a person can lose all sense of time and feel quite disoriented.


There just seems to be a vibe in the place that suggests you're never quite alone. For people who love the idea of being in the presence of spirits and supernatural, that's probably a cool experience. Personally, I’m not going anywhere near anything that brings back memories for a ghost. If you wanna find out check, it out for yourself. I'm fine taking everyone's word for it!
