Loved it! High incline at the beginning of upper trestle falls at first, beautiful hike overall.

awsome hike doing the full trail in 3 weeks again

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!

This path is by no means difficult but it is beautiful. There are multiple places to park for free. Dorena lake is pretty big so although I like walking/running I would suggest bringing a bike if you want to get around the whole thing. I just went over the weekend 2/25/17 and a lot of the lake was drained so there were even more areas to explore. Go there if you like well paved paths, beautiful views, and friendly people. Bonus, the lake is great for water sports in the summer.

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 was a really good ride except for the fact that about one fourth - one half was on the main road. One side of the lake is all road and the other side is all trail. Everyone we met was super friendly.
