Typically snowy November-February. Fire closures in the summer are common.
A steep and loose trail with some optional bedrock steps.
The trail begins just to the left where FR13 splits from 254. You can run up here from Cedro Middle
. It is a bit obscure, but distinct singletrack takes off through the trees.
After a couple hundred feet, you pop out on 254 just before the Cedro Peak gate. Go around this gate and stay toward the left.
A distinct trench singletrack will angle up along the west face of the peak. After a tight switchback, the trail continues to climb and goes up one of the larger steps in the area - there is a bypass.
After climbing through an open area, the top of Cedro Peak is reached. Please stay away from all tower facilities.
