Great hike!

Great quick hike! Elevation happens quick though! Good challenge.

Great hike. Starts out on the Iron Horse trail, watch for signs on the right 1/2 mile in.

Very nice view from the top

Very quiet hike. The trail is pretty narrow, but the view is phenomenal up top. If you take the left route at the fork it is significantly shorter but also significantly steeper. The right route at the fork is longer, but much easier. Also to access the trail, you have to take the John Wayne Pioneer Trail until you pass the creek, then the Cedar Butte trail will be on the right.

I will say that it's a moderate short one, but it's a beautiful trail, really quiet compare with the rattlesnake just in front. The view it's really nice.

Very quiet, short. Nice view.
