The Cedar Springs Trail is a beautiful trail that is gently graded up to the PCT. The views along this section of the PCT are amazing. The trail switchbacks up to the PCT. It is a bit rocky, so wear good boots. The summit is a great destination by itself, and the hike to Pyramid and Lion can be combined with this into an all day peakbagging adventure. Be advised that the combination is strenuous.
