Loop through one of the largest groves of Red Cedars in the US. Easy day hike.
Enjoyable trail, not too long but enough to make a good hike. Always love going to this park, the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Nice trail in good condition. Well marked with a lot of sinkholes and "lava rocks". Great for all ages.
Great 2 mile hike. easy to moderate loop. many rock formations and sinks. well blazed trail. not a lot of hikers on Sunday. Enough to see to keep it interesting. Shag Bark Trees cool too. Other trails nearby also. Definitely will come again. Good for kids 5+ beginner hikers.
Nice trail with not much traffic. I took my 4 and 6 year old today, and it was the perfect length. Nothing super spectacular in terms of scenery, but it was nice enough.
Nice easy loop, not too heavily trafficked even during peak season. Have seen lots of wildlife on the trail which makes it enjoyable. Good for dogs, a few access points for water and lots of new smells.
good trail for my 10yr old son and myself
What a neat little trail. It was a little rocky from time to time, but was well marked and easy to follow. It was a good time.
Very good, easy hike to take young kids on. Would do again.
Nice rolling trial. Only 2 miles so it was a nice addition to Hidden Springs Trail.
Nice, easy short hike. Leaves were beginning to turn making the scenery very pretty.
This is a pretty nice trail. Doesn't seem to get as muddy as the hidden springs trail. I recommend walking this trail plus another trail at Cedars of Lebanon since this one is only 2 miles long. Lots of moss and cedar trees everywhere...and large holes to look at.
This trail is only 2 miles but the hike was enjoyable. The trees are cedar and smell so wonderful; it really adds to the experience. There are a few beautiful open areas with trees spread several feet apart to help see the surroundings area nicely. Do note there is a neighborhood at the trail's beginning and the first approach is rocky. So, don't be scared off or judge the entire trail based of how it starts. Enjoy!
Tip: There is a 5 mile trail in the same park. Do that trail first to get in a nice walk/hike and get your step count up and finish off on this Cedar Forest Trail...the scenery on the 5 mile trail (Hidden Springs) isn't as nice.
This trail is located inside the Cedars of Lebanon State Park. I forgot to clarify that in my previous review. Not sure why that's not explicitly clear in the trail location details/directions.
Easy hike with some slight elevation changes over limestone outcroppings. Quick, dog-friendly hike with several sinkholes and well-shaded.
An easy hike, great for taking a dog along on the trail. A couple of rocky areas, nothing too crazy though.
