Need wild lands and solitude? In this new series, we’ll be showcasing the public natural areas within a one to two-hour drive from DFW.
Many North Texans may not be aware of the unique geologic mountains and mineral springs, national preserve wetlands, rare remnants of tallgrass prairies, rolling wooded hill country and lakes so clear you can scuba dive that await nearby.
Make it a day trip or stay overnight. If you consider yourself a nature lover in North Texas, you really must get to know these places.
