    I want to say that Big Cedar Trails are only about 20-30 minutes away. Big cedar trails are some of the better ones around north Texas.

    Overall what is your opinion of Irving in general? Any areas to avoid living in ect? Cost of living through the roof ect? I'm living in a very cheap cost of living area now. Work would be within 5 mins of DFW.

    Irving is probably about 30 minutes from a lot of trails. Big Cedar, Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, Boulder. a little farther to Northshore or Sansom. This is all assuming there is little traffic. in DFW, there is almost always traffic though.

    You say youre gonna work 5 minutes from DFW? What does that mean exactly? DFW is a huge area that takes about an hour to drive from one end to the other.
