Cedar Creek Trail

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)

Trail Visitor Reviews

Comment: Not too bad of a hike. The waterfall was a bit dry on 1 July. The only part that is difficult is at the very beginning/end. Took about 1 hr.

By Wesley Choate on 7/20/2010

Comment: Had a wonderful hike on 07/19/2010, taking my sister on her first trip to the waterfall. It was very warm and humid out, but we still saw twenty or so people out enjoying the outdoors and getting some good exercise. The waterfall is breathtaking, and the hike there is well maintained and just a nice journey.

To ensure you enjoy your state park experience, be aware of the natural world. There are some areas which are potentially hazardous to all visitors. Since it is impractical to post signs at all danger points, use caution when approaching such areas as cliffs, caves, heavily wooded areas, swamps, streams, and lakes. Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
