The Hike to Cedar Creek Falls:
The hike to Cedar Creek Falls is a challenging 6 miles round-trip. Visitors on their way to the falls travel downhill on a trail with no shade. The strenuous hike from Cedar Creek Falls back up to both trailheads requires more than two miles of consistent, challenging uphill hiking.
This hike is not advised for those who are not regularly active or anyone with previous health conditions that can be aggravated by heat or intense physical activity.
DOGS ARE NOT ADVISED IN THIS AREA DUE TO THE HIGH NUMBER OF CANINE DEATHS CAUSED BY HEAT STOKE EACH YEAR. Heat stroke is a life threating emergency for dogs. Conditions that lead to heat stroke in dogs include exercising in hot weather in areas without shade.
