Cedar Creek loop trail begins at a historic log cabin before descending to a scenic section of Cedar Creek above Cedar Falls. The trail was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930's, this trail's rock steps and bluffs create a few difficult places, but very scenic.

Love this trail. Found it on a sunny spring day with everything in bloom and the water roaring down the creek. A very nice day hike.

great short trail. Nice views the entire time only recomendation is use the most North facing entrance when walking with dogs, there are some steep declines that your dog could pull you down if you go the other way.

I think overall, this is a more beautiful trail than the Cedar Falls trail except, of course, for the falls. Did this whole trail in 1 hr 31 mins and at 65 with original knees, etc. it was a little more than moderately difficult due to the amount of elevation change. It was very well worth it and would do it again.

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

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

Pretty trail on the easy side of moderate. Some rock steps, but short and well-maintained. There is a cave on this trail that one could climb into without much trouble, if wearing the right clothes. 3.5/5

Great Hike along the creek with a few difficult rock formations making it more moderate than easy. Well worth it!

October 2015: Hiked all Petit Jean State Park trails, this was a really beautiful and special hike.

Beautiful trail. Lots of photo ops. Good for beginners who want to do a little more than just walk through the woods. I would say it is definitely one that everyone should do at least once.

Beautiful family hike. Not too strenuous but more than a stroll in the park.
