This trail, basically a continuation of Home Tank Draw Trail, connects with it to form a loop that returns to more-used roads. However, this portion of the loop is a highly scenic trail in its own right for those without the highclearance 4WD necessary to tackle the rocky Home Tank Draw Trail. Cedar Flat Road, a wide, graded dirt road, can be driven by passenger vehicles in dry weather. The highlight of the trail is the section of wide shelf road near the western end, which has panoramic views into West Clear Creek Canyon and south to the Verde Valley. These views are best appreciated when driving the trail in the reverse direction. Special Attractions: Views into West Clear Creek Canyon and south to the Verde Valley; Connects to Home Tank Draw Trail. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any).
