Seester time! We needed one more hike in before our day ended. Since this is right beside the Cedar Hill SP, we chose it. I’m sure it is sooo much better when it isn’t muddy. It rained many inches last week and the trail was a mess. Another obstacle was the improvements being done near the road. It took as a while to figure out how to get to the trail. Once that’s complete I’m sure it will be great again. We will need to do this trail again.

Okay however it's too short and not very challenging.

Pretty simple trail. Too short for my liking, but I ended up turning back and taking a trail off the main path (which is a no-no) and hiked straight up to enjoy a lake view. That short hike up was challenging a bit, which I liked since it was a short trail. A copperhead was killed there so be safe if you take the no-no route.

Very scenic! There are a lot of hills to climb up and down. Definitely a good cardio work out.

Short and sweet. Would give it 5 stars if it were longer. However, I can't really fault it because it is right next to (and shares a parking lot with) the Dogwood Canyon preserve. Dogwood Canyon is great as well!
