Cedar Run Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This hike leads you into rugged upper Cedar Run Canyon. The trail down to the main falls is steep. However, aquatic rewards are many along the way—you pass innumerable cascades spilling down the narrow, boulderladen gorge, a wild place deserving of national park protection.

Your trip to the cascades will be slow, because you will need to watch your footing and stop often to admire the scenery. Note: This hike can be busy on warmweather weekends."

"A very strenuous loop hike through two gorges passes nine beautiful waterfalls in Cedar Run and Whiteoak Canyon. According to signs at the trailhead, the 7.7-mile descent and return ascent along the Whiteoak Canyon Trail can be made in six hours. That is certainly true, particularly for someone in good shape.

However, because the trail takes you to an area of such great natural beauty, it would be far better, and probably necessary, to plan to make this a full-day hike. Pack a picnic lunch, swimsuit, and camera, for the trail puts you within easy access of two beautiful waterfalls, relatively easy access of four more, and not-so- easy access of three others, for a total of nine falls."
