Loved it! High incline at the beginning of upper trestle falls at first, beautiful hike overall.

Beautiful Spring hike through forest (if you start at West trailhead). Then after Cedar Creek campground, you walk along creek---more like rushing river this time of year. Great hiking spot!

Beautiful hike! Well kept trails. Went on a hot day so only did half but the trees helped with shade. There were some steep spots but nothing long. Would not see this trail as particularly good for mountain biking. Falls great! Definitely on the list of repeats.

Nice, fairly easy hike along Brice Creek with rolling hills, nothing particularly difficult. Doesn't get a lot of use on weekdays, which is when I have been there. The creek is beautiful and has minor waterfalls. There is a place fairly close to Cedar Creek Campground where you can go down to the creek and scramble around on the rocks. I found bobcat tracks on the trail once.

This creek is beautiful! The water is so blue and the trees are amazing. It's not a super strenuous hike but it's still worth the trip. The nearby campground is my favorite in the area.

We started at the Cedar Creek Campground, which has a bathroom and free parking. Heading towards Trestle Creek Falls there are plenty of chances to check out interesting rock formations with the river rushing underneath.
In January 2016 there were plenty of trees down, along with a few small landslides. Nothing that will give a hiker any problem. Overall the trail was very well kept and afforded many excellent views. Echoing what others have said, connect with the Trestle Creek trail for the real treat - a chance to walk behind the falls.

For Mt bikes this is a tough, technical trail--especially the uphill. I recommend biking up the road and crossing over at one of the many bridges. The trip back to the car is still challenging, but fun.

Hiked this with a class in October 2012, was spectacular. Go all the way up to Trestle Creek Falls, worth the trip and view.

Great close by trail. Not difficult but you can set your pace to get a good workout if you like.
Nice well kept up trail along river with great offshoot up upper trestle Creek falls where you walk behind the falls.
