From Seattle, E on I-90 to exit 32. Right on 468th Ave for 3.5 miles to the parking area on the left side of the road

Very quiet hike. The trail is pretty narrow, but the view is phenomenal up top. If you take the left route at the fork it is significantly shorter but also significantly steeper. The right route at the fork is longer, but much easier. Also to access the trail, you have to take the John Wayne Pioneer Trail until you pass the creek, then the Cedar Butte trail will be on the right.

I will say that it's a moderate short one, but it's a beautiful trail, really quiet compare with the rattlesnake just in front. The view it's really nice.

beautiful hike but NOT easy. I would rate a moderate and the switch backs at the end are definitely a heart rate increaser.

Short hike and on nicer days with better bang for your buck than I had. Foggy view at the top but it was a really quick hike so judging from the view others had posted i will definitely be trying again on a sunny day. Took me about 40 minutes "speed walk" hiking with couple stops to the top from the base of the actual trail off the gravel road and 30 mins down without stopping. I would label it as moderate/easy and comparable to rattlesnake ridge but shorter.

First time on this trail. I have ridden past the trail head many times so it was on my list and today was the day. Takes you through beautiful lush forest with ferns and moss everywhere. Good workout depending on which part of the trail you take up. Left is much steeper where as right is longer but less incline. Really nice view of the valley and surrounding peaks at the top. I could see Si, Teneriffe and Mailbox from where I stood. Was fairly busy today but didn't pose a problem. Also it's a good alternative to the ever so busy Rattlesnake Ledge hike. Bonus too is that the John Wayne parking lot is never full. Does require a discover pass however (totally worth it!)
