Cedar Springs Trail
The Cedar Springs Trail is a fun hike in the San Bernardino National Forest that features a good amount of elevation gain and sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. While out hiking the trail, you will climb uphill alongside East Canyon Creek and traverse a series of switchbacks, before experiencing views of nearby mountains and visiting Cedar Creek. Hikers should take note that some parts of this trail are fairly overgrown and there are plenty of insects, so make sure to bring bug spray along.

Route Description for Cedar Springs Trail
If you don’t mind trudging through a bit of overgrown brush and want to experience some pleasant views across the surrounding Southern California landscape, then the Cedar Spring Trail will be a great option for you to explore.
Setting out from the trailhead, you will follow along the road as it leads to the northeast and runs parallel to East Canyon Creek. Here, you will begin to gain some elevation, before the trail steepens and transitions into a series of winding switchbacks, eventually arriving at a junction with the Pacific Crest Trail.
Passing straight through the junction, you will enjoy some scenic views of the surrounding area, before descending slightly to the banks of Cedar Creek and Cedar Spring. Take some time here to relax, before heading back along the same route in order to return to the trailhead.
Getting to the Cedar Springs Trail Trailhead
