- October 23, 2022, Halff Park at Ranger Drive – Bill Holston will take you on a hike through the Big Trees. Some of our Preserve’s largest trees are found on the dirt trail that starts from Halff Park, heads deep into the woods toward Spring Creek and loops back to come out near the GISD event center. The hike is about 2 miles. It will walk through some of the second growth forest and access the part of the Forest featuring some of the largest oaks, as well as understory trees like Mexican Plum and Eastern Wahoo. He writes about his adventures in a column for D magazine, Law Man Walking, and also penned the Ultimate Hiking Guide to Dallas for D Magazine. Bill's day job is a human rights lawyer at the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas.
