    Route Description for Cedar Camp Trail

    Hiking along the Cedar Camp Trail makes for a fun day in the woods as you can explore the dense network of hiking and mountain bike trails and take in the beautiful scenery across the woodland landscape. Before setting out, make sure to bring a GPS or trail map to stay on the correct route in the confusing web of interconnected trails.

    The hike begins next to Cedar Lake, and you will quickly be able to look out over the surface of the water and take in some pretty magical views. On a fair-weather day, the water’s calm surface will often reflect a mirror image of the wooded shore and mountainous backdrop, creating a beautiful sight. Continue along the trail as it passes by the second Cedar Lake and turns to the west, where you will reach the end of the trail. If you plan your hike for the heat of the summer months, you can cool off by jumping into the refreshing waters of the lake.
