We hiked this in the clockwise route, up Cedar, down White oak. The hike started a bit dreary but cleared up while on the AT where we stopped at one of the overlooks for a quick bite to eat. The transition from the AT to white oak is not intuitive, you pop out by stables take a right down the road to the parking lot where you'll find the next trailhead. Beautiful falls the whole way down, even in the fog :)

Great hike; have done it twice and will return. Clockwise route (up Cedar, down White Oak) is better. Bring 3L of water per person and sturdy shoes.
