Cattail Pond Loop Reviews

Cedar Ridge Preserve is definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. There are trails of all levels, and the nature you will see is outstanding. The Cattail Pond Loop is a good starting point for new visitors. I would rate it easy to moderate, but be warned it does get hot out there. Bring plenty of water and wear shoes you like for rocky terrain. A lot of the path is rocks, so be prepared. The trail crosses some of the others, so take a picture of the map before you go. It is easy to get turned around if you aren’t paying attention. Check their Facebook page before heading out. They do have adjusted hours sometimes for weather. In the summer especially if the heat index is too high.
