Cedar Creek loop trail begins at a historic log cabin before descending to a scenic section of Cedar Creek above Cedar Falls. The trail was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930's, this trail's rock steps and bluffs create a few difficult places, but very scenic.

Pretty trail on the easy side of moderate. Some rock steps, but short and well-maintained. There is a cave on this trail that one could climb into without much trouble, if wearing the right clothes. 3.5/5

Great Hike along the creek with a few difficult rock formations making it more moderate than easy. Well worth it!

Beautiful trail. Lots of photo ops. Good for beginners who want to do a little more than just walk through the woods. I would say it is definitely one that everyone should do at least once.

Beautiful family hike. Not too strenuous but more than a stroll in the park.

I remember it being a little longer than listed here but maybe not. This trail is awesome, especially around the creek.

We've hiked this many times. It's best caught a couple of days after a rain with the creek is running well. The sounds of the creek is very pleasing.

Very beautiful. We went beginning of April and the water flowing down the rocks was perfect. This trail loops around to the beginning at the pioneer cabin and I would be sure and go clockwise.

This is my absolute favorite trail. It is so beautiful. You can access this trail a couple different ways and can veer off onto other trails as well. There has been water everytime I have taken this trail. Not too hard. there is climbing, valleys, big rocks, cliffs, lil caves. Little bit of everything and makes for great pics

Great short hike. The creek was full which provided some great little water falls. The CCC built steps along the trail area a great reminder of what these men did in our State/National Parks. We will be back to this one.

Cedar Creek is great little hike. A little challenging for kids but good for the whole family. Starts and returns at a historic log cabin. It has hand carved steps in stone, cascades and waterfalls, views, and more. Very fun for no longer than it is. Best hiked clockwise.
