A short 15 minute drive south of Dallas in the Oak Cliff Neighborhood

Oak Cliff Nature Preserve

AWESOME RUN! - Run with friends

Overall this run was awesome but had some drawbacks to it. That’s why the addition of “run with friends” was added. The area this trail head is located in seemed a little sketchy which may be due to the industrial part of town it’s in. The preserve itself also showed signs of littering with trash and even an abandoned baby stroller at one point along the path.

Aside from these factors the scenery was beautiful. This is a wooded run with trails that lead to openings then again back into the woods. The jumble of trails can be a little confusing. My running partners and I got confused more than once. You’ll see in the video moments when I am clearly turned around. Run this trail during the day well before sundown and with some friends to stay safe and ‘un-lost’!


PATH: The path is an unpaved natural path with rocks, roots, and everything in between wear sturdy shoes

WHAT TO EXPECT: There were not that many other hikers or joggers the day we ran. This may have been due to a recent cold blast that had hit Dallas only a few days before. You’ll see some of the remnants of a Dallas snow storm in the video. Expect a heavily wooded trail with gorgeous ravines and many small foot bridges to cross. If it’s rained recently expect to get VERY MUDDY. The three of us running this trail had mud caked to our shoes. All in all it was a very fun run.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Jog Blog is:To bring people together through our shared love of running. To encourage each other to reach our goals both on the trail and off. To bring the joy of running a new trail to anyone, anywhere through pure uncut POV video.



POV Experience

I thought what better way to chronicle runs than to record the trails from a point of view angle that only the Go Pro Hero camera can provide. I hope these videos make it easier for runners to research new trails and also bring the outdoors indoors for people who may be home bound.

Runner’s Oath

“On my honor I will do my best To be a better runner; To watch for cars, and increase my mileage gradually; To run in the rain, without boast or complaint; To not go out way too fast; To eat right, listen to my body, and one of these days, volunteer at a race” -from, www.DRRunner.Wordpress.com
