Need to Know

Adventure Pass required to park at trailhead. Lot fills early on weekends. Do not leave valuables in car.

Description

The trail starts at the intersection with Icehouse Canyon Trail 0.9 miles from the trailhead and climbs a series of switchbacks north from the junction into Cedar Canyon where a seasonal spring flows. Cedar Glen Campground is about 1.3 miles from the junction. The trail continues for about 2.3 more miles, climbing out of Cedar Canyon then following a steady grade before rejoining Icehouse Canyon Trail further east.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, bigcone spruce, Jeffrey pine, sugar pine and white fir offer intermittent shade. Ceanothus, manzanita are the most common ground covers. Beautiful columbines and monkeyflowers around the spring.
