My wife and I along with our dog hiked this trail following hiking the Seven Hollows Trail. We were so glad we decided to continue onto this trail - lots of beautiful views and crossings of cedar creek. This trail was short in distance but was more rigorous than the Seven Hollows Trail. Don’t miss Stouts Point scenic overlook on your way out of the park.

Great intermediate trail

We hiked this with our dog and enjoyed the diverse landscapes, views, and creek crossings. We hiked the Cedar Creek Trail afterwards and I would highly recommend that shorter (slightly more rigorous) trail for more water crossings and views. Also, don’t miss the scenic overlook towards the entrance of Petit Jean State Park (Stouts Point)

This trail has several things to see. There is the natural land bridge, the grotto, and some turtle formed rocks. All in all, this trail should be on everyone's bucket list.

This trail was very busy, lots of leashed dogs, but totally worth it and all very courteous hikers.

The trail was rewarding especially when you get to see a beautiful waterfall. It was a lot of fun!

Very nice, short easy trail. Good alternative to Cedar Falls trail. Very little foot traffic. A few interesting rock formations and nice river streams. A hidden gem at Petit Jean.

Nice trail. Better after a heavy rain.

The trails are well blazed and cleared for trekkers. During rainy seasons keep in mind the trails are on a incline into a hallow so the paths could be flowing with water.

Very very nice place

Good trail. Colors should really peak in the next week or so

Absolutely stunning , crisp morning air a perfect day for hiking Nov. 3 2018

Was definitely a good workout. Brought my two dogs as well and they seemed to enjoy it.

stunning in the fall foilage. highly recommend

The trail offers 4 scenic hollows that make up for the 3 missing ones. Highlights include ‘Natural Bridge’ and ‘Grotto’. Terrain is variable: groomed/rough, dry/wet, level/steep with lots of natural rocks integrated into the trail. The creek was flowing freely with large rocks well placed to cross over. Poles are helpful to navigate unsteady/steep surfaces. Overall, a wonderful hike.

Good trek. Well marked.

Great trail with the family with doggie clean up bags at the trail head!

Great trail. Great view!

Cedar Creek Trail self guiding trail. very nice easy trail to walk along multiple small water falls and 2 bridge crossings. Me, my wife and daughter and 3 dogs walked this Oct 20th. nice day.

Nice loop, not too difficult. Great scenery and creek along majority of the trail with multiple crossings. Grotto and Natural bridge are nice to see.

we went in the evening, trail had very few people on it. it was a beautiful sight. can't wait to return to stay at the lodge and adventure out on more trails.

great trail after a big rain, don’t skip the grotto it’s an extra .25 off the main trail

some big slick rocks but all in all a pretty easy trail if you take your time, I stopped several times and still finished right under 4 hours and I’m pretty slow

We loved this hike! So many beautiful rocks! There’s also a lot of areas where there is running water. Some water cascading over rocks. We took our puppy for her first hike here. It was the perfect first hike. She learned how to climb over rocks and get into the water! It was the perfect length. The only thing I didn’t love was that we parked in the wrong area (there’s two areas that get to the trail so much easier!). So if you use apple maps, just go a little further than it tells you to and park at the Pioneer cabin!

This was by far the best hike I have ever completed. We don’t have much hiking near my home (Memphis, TN) so this was an incredible find for me and my friend. The hike back up the switchbacks was tough, but we were expecting it. I would highly recommend pushing yourself further to make it around to the backside of the waterfall. I can’t wait to do this hike again next year!

This trail was amazing! It was a little scary starting out because it’s downhill on rocks and they were slick. I’m also afraid of heights a bit ! Climbing those same rocks on the way back was taxing. It was a humid day and around 80 degrees but thankfully cloudy. The hike is absolutely worth it..the falls were flowing on our hike. You can check the falls at the overlook if you would rather not be disappointed with the falls. I’ve read depending on rain it can be just a trickle. This hike is only 2 miles but harder than 4.5. Mile seven hollows which is also a cool hike. Our dogs loved both and handled both great!

We are in our mid 60s and after a day of rain this was a little challenging . Made it half way down the rocky inclines and decided to turn around . It was beautiful . Our children who had a 2 year old and a 8 wks old easily treaked them down the slippery slopes . Later we found their was a lookout point over the waterfalls down the road a bit . I think it would have been more maneuverable when not wet .It was a beautiful . Lots of dogs on leashes .
