This trail has several things to see. There is the natural land bridge, the grotto, and some turtle formed rocks. All in all, this trail should be on everyone's bucket list.

We did this trail during the fall and it was great. There are a lot of cool trails and views to see in Petit Jean State Park and this goes by many of them. I definitely wouldn't consider this trail hard, there were only a couple small sections that were difficult.

This trail was very busy, lots of leashed dogs, but totally worth it and all very courteous hikers.

The trail was rewarding especially when you get to see a beautiful waterfall. It was a lot of fun!

Very nice, short easy trail. Good alternative to Cedar Falls trail. Very little foot traffic. A few interesting rock formations and nice river streams. A hidden gem at Petit Jean.

Nice trail. Better after a heavy rain.

The trails are well blazed and cleared for trekkers. During rainy seasons keep in mind the trails are on a incline into a hallow so the paths could be flowing with water.

Very very nice place

Absolutely stunning , crisp morning air a perfect day for hiking Nov. 3 2018

Was definitely a good workout. Brought my two dogs as well and they seemed to enjoy it.

The trail offers 4 scenic hollows that make up for the 3 missing ones. Highlights include ‘Natural Bridge’ and ‘Grotto’. Terrain is variable: groomed/rough, dry/wet, level/steep with lots of natural rocks integrated into the trail. The creek was flowing freely with large rocks well placed to cross over. Poles are helpful to navigate unsteady/steep surfaces. Overall, a wonderful hike.

Will definitely be back to do this trail again

Cedar Creek Trail self guiding trail. very nice easy trail to walk along multiple small water falls and 2 bridge crossings. Me, my wife and daughter and 3 dogs walked this Oct 20th. nice day.

Nice loop, not too difficult. Great scenery and creek along majority of the trail with multiple crossings. Grotto and Natural bridge are nice to see.

My wife and both dogs started out from campsite with the thought of walking around campground. We saw the paved ccc/bike trail and struck on a morning walk. Stopped at Cedar Falls overlook with a quick look at falls running. Easy smooth hike to end and back to campground making a our short walk about 4 miles. Great place to be in cool weather.

we went in the evening, trail had very few people on it. it was a beautiful sight. can't wait to return to stay at the lodge and adventure out on more trails.

great trail after a big rain, don’t skip the grotto it’s an extra .25 off the main trail

some big slick rocks but all in all a pretty easy trail if you take your time, I stopped several times and still finished right under 4 hours and I’m pretty slow

We loved this hike! So many beautiful rocks! There’s also a lot of areas where there is running water. Some water cascading over rocks. We took our puppy for her first hike here. It was the perfect first hike. She learned how to climb over rocks and get into the water! It was the perfect length. The only thing I didn’t love was that we parked in the wrong area (there’s two areas that get to the trail so much easier!). So if you use apple maps, just go a little further than it tells you to and park at the Pioneer cabin!

This was by far the best hike I have ever completed. We don’t have much hiking near my home (Memphis, TN) so this was an incredible find for me and my friend. The hike back up the switchbacks was tough, but we were expecting it. I would highly recommend pushing yourself further to make it around to the backside of the waterfall. I can’t wait to do this hike again next year!

Awesome trail so much to see. Agree with the other positive posters.

This trail was amazing! It was a little scary starting out because it’s downhill on rocks and they were slick. I’m also afraid of heights a bit ! Climbing those same rocks on the way back was taxing. It was a humid day and around 80 degrees but thankfully cloudy. The hike is absolutely worth it..the falls were flowing on our hike. You can check the falls at the overlook if you would rather not be disappointed with the falls. I’ve read depending on rain it can be just a trickle. This hike is only 2 miles but harder than 4.5. Mile seven hollows which is also a cool hike. Our dogs loved both and handled both great!

We are in our mid 60s and after a day of rain this was a little challenging . Made it half way down the rocky inclines and decided to turn around . It was beautiful . Our children who had a 2 year old and a 8 wks old easily treaked them down the slippery slopes . Later we found their was a lookout point over the waterfalls down the road a bit . I think it would have been more maneuverable when not wet .It was a beautiful . Lots of dogs on leashes .

Very cool trail. Nice mix of flat land, rocky areas, a waterfall, and a little opportunity for climbing thrown in. Crosses several beautiful streams. Maybe moderate due to the distance but not a hard hike at all. The grotto is cool and the natural bridge is beautiful. With the hike to the grotto we clocked 5 miles in 2.5 hours. Our dogs loved it and so did we. Might be tough for kids due to the distance. Lots of beautiful scenery!

Went after a couple of days of rain, the rocks were slippery and there was water covering a good portion of the trail.

easy hike

Loved this trail! Plenty of great scenery, well maintained and marked trails. Great trail to just relax and take your time on!

Great hike and probably pretty challenging for beginners. The falls are worth it though!
