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.
