The trail takes you to the top of Cedar Rock, with wonderful views of Stone Mountain and the Blue Ridge escarpment. The trail climbs over Cedar Rock, as it runs between the Black Jack Ridge and Wolf Rock Trails.
Nice short hike to great views of the Stone Mountain Face... combine with Wolf Rock for an opposite side view. Follow the red circle blaze on the ground across the face of the rock. Great side trail to the Stone Mountain Loop. There are a couple of options to get to the top of Cedar Rock. While we were on one of the connector trails we explored an old and interesting shelter and homesite chimney.
