Great hike, completed in four hours, Lots of bear tracks. Fishbowls campsite had water and was beautiful camping location. Cedar Creek was also a beaitiful camping location , however no water. Reminded me a little of Zion once we peaked out at 5900 ft and you could see the surrounding country side. Saw no other hikers.

Good loop trail. The Fishbowl trailhead and the Cedar Creek trail heads are a couple miles apart down a dirt trail called Grade Valley Road. If we ever get a decent rainy season, this trail would be outstanding. Between the Cedar Creek campsite and the Fishbowls campsite there's a bit of a hill, about 1000 ft gained in a mile and a quarter and 800 lost on the other side. Despite the description, there is no lake on this trip. If the rain is good there are some interesting tubs along the creek but nothing I'd even call a pond, let alone a lake.
