This trail winds along a scenic section of Cedar Creek above Cedar Falls. Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930's, this trail's rock steps and bluffs create a few difficult places. The mountain stream, high bluffs and thick vegetation make Cedar Creek Trail perfect for experiencing local bird and plant life. A guide to the trail is available at Mather Lodge and at the park Visitor Center. (Dark Pink Blazes)

Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
