Love this place


When reaching the break in the trail near Mather lodge if you are hiking counter clockwise (which is suggested as others have stated) cross the parking lot and to the right of the first cabin is where the trail continues. Due to the amount of cars in the parking lot this was hard to spot, had to ask the workers at the lodge who did not know

Beautiful and a must if in the area; however, large amounts of trash from the crowds. Go early / during a weekday to avoid this.

Awesome trail. Beautiful too! Tough for toddlers, though, unless you are able to carry them.

Absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to go back! My family loved it!

Cedar Creek Trail is a great short easy hike for beginners or the experienced.

Beautiful scenery on this trail! Was a little hard at some points going down on the rocks but worth it!

Great little trail for family hiking. Our girls enjoyed the walk, seeing the sights, turtle rocks, and cave drawings!
