The Forest Research Institute and the Indian Military Academy (I don't know if they still allow it) would do for a start.

Durbar Sahib in Jhanda Mohalla is also worth visiting. The modern history of Dehradun starts from there.

Santla Devi is a small trek just ahead of Tapkeshwar temple.

Chandrabani has an old temple.

Malsi dear park on Mussorie road has a mini zoo.

And you may visit 4 siddhs:

Lakshman Siddh on Dehradun-Rishikesh road
Kalu Siddh, near Bhaniyawala
Manak Siddh, near Shimla Bypass)
Madu Siddh, near Premnagar
