Cedar Creek Hiking Trail is a 1.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Ashland, Missouri. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running.
These Trails offer a brief escape from the city. However they prove rather dificult if it's recently rained. Trails are marked but narrow. The Devil Backbone is fun but quick. Some of the best views are well off the beaten path but knowing what land is park land or private may prove to be a bit of a challenge. During the summer months trails can become overgrown and difficult to follow. I recomend winter hiking.
