A good short hike through a forest but pretty crowded. I would suggest to go early or late in the day. Most of the trail is on a boardwalk.

We were talked on this trail just couple days before forest fire burn down the trail. I guess my review will not help other tourist anymore. But this trail is pleasant and flat which all ages tourist can take a hike on this trail.

Trail of the Cedars is basically a nature trail through a beautiful stand of cedars. It is almost entirely on boardwalk. It is very well kept up and allowed for a little wilderness experience for people who are mobility challenged.

Took the hike when the wildfires were burning in the Sprague fire. The trees provided some nice cover and the air seemed a little cleaner in the area. The hike itself is a fairly short and simple (flat) 1 mile loop right off the Going...More
