Cedar Spring Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This area burned in the 2013 Mountain Fire. As of 2016, the Cedar Springs Trail remains closed east of the Paci?c Crest Trail. Check with the Idyllwild Ranger Station at 909-382-2921 to determine if the trail has reopened. On both sides of the Desert Divide are a number of little springs trickling cold water. Cedar Spring, on the desert slope of the ridge, shaded by incense-cedars and black oaks, is one of the nicest of these water sources. Just below the spring, in a shaded recess, is a small campsite much favored by hunters and Boy Scout groups.
This short trail trip climbs over the Desert Divide from Morris Ranch Road and drops into this little sylvan sanctuary with its ribbon of running water. It’s best as a spring trip, when the water ?ows abundantly and the hillside is damp from spring rains."
