Cedar Rock trail is a steep, rocky trail with great views at the top of Cedar Rock. It is similar to Big Rock Trail which it intersects at the top of Cedar Rock. Both ends of the trail are about the same difficulty with the end closest to Corn Mill Shoals Road probably a bit steeper and more technical.

This trail is not recommended for beginner mountain bikers due to the steepness and trail surfaces. Lots of loose stones and it gets wet in several places. In very wet weather this trail can get pretty slippery on the slick rock areas of which there are many.
