Very unique place!!

Will definitely be back to do this trail again

Great trail to take the family on, no matter what the age. Plenty of places to stop and rest if you need to.
Do bring food and water, not very many places to stop before or after hike.

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.

Visited in the fall after a rain and thought the falls would be flowing a little bit better. But it was still a nice hike and cool sight to see.

The road to get to the trailhead is rough and parking is limited but for the sights you encounter on this trail those are a small price to pay. Shining example of what the Natural State has to offer.

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

It rained during the entire hike but was pleasantly surprised how well the trees over the trail kept most of the rain from getting on us. Great trail for kids and adults, just wish the dirt road to the trail weren’t so bumpy/rocky and long!

Great hike with wonderful views. Lots of little trails to go on and get great pictures. Not a strenuous hike. Watch your step once out on the rocks. There are cracks and holes one could fall in. Wouldn’t recommend bringing the kids. I would recommend doing King’s Bluff while there.

Hello twins. ;)

Stunning stunning stunning! The views are worth it! Not kid friendly near the point. Little streams along the way that had some water flowing. A great hike!

Even after the rains, the water was just trickling but it is still worth the hike to see.

Great trail, even before you get to the stunning views. Rocky and moderately taxing, but nothing crazy.

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!

Was worried it would be hard to find, but GPS took us right there - it did called the gravel road off of Highway 21 County Road 5, but it appeared to be marked 9560. Lots of great reviews here that helped assure us we were going the right way. Also was worried from many reviews that it would be super busy and there would be no where to park on a nice, fall, Saturday afternoon. We were able to park right near the trail head though and had all the pictures we wanted at the crag within about 15 minutes. Overall the trail is pretty easy to follow. I agree with moderate difficulty rating, hardest part is the end coming back to the parking area. Waterfalls weren’t really much to see to right now - maybe another time of year would be better.

I am sharing this even though quite embarrassing in hopes someone else does not make the same mistake I did. The trail head is on the opposite of the road from the bulletin board. I wandered around the incorrect side for about 1.5 hrs convinced I saw not just 1 but 2 separate trails on the side of the road with bulletin board. The good news is due to that I got out to the crag much later and the rain had stopped allowing for much better views.

Fun, short trail. Great for kids or those not in the best of shape. Lots of large rocks to climb on and look around.

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!

I loved this trail. Clearly marked... Provides great views... Easy enough, but not boring at all. If you are going on a nice day I would recommend getting a very early start, so you are not sharing the point with a lot of people. Because it is short with it big pay off it does get busy. Not that that is a bad thing, but it makes it hard to get photos.

The only down side to the trail was getting the the trail head. The road leading to it is gravel, and somewhat steep at the beginning of it. It does level out a bit, but that first part can be hard for certain vehicles to climb.

The water wasn't flowing but it still was an excellent trail. I'll be back.

Awesome trail so much to see. Agree with the other positive posters.

Great trail very well marked lots to see.

Trail provides incredible photo ops. Trail is difficult at times due to uneven ground. A few steep climbs but overall doable for beginner’s.

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!

Great hike. The crag itself is iconic, but the views of the Buffalo Valley are spectacular. Just be prepared for a long, rocky drive up to the trailhead.
