This is primarily a hiking trail, there is a parking area at the bottom. Too steep to ride up for most, too fast and boring a descent - you won't find many bikers here.

This is a mellow doubletrack route before switching to singletrack at the second Cedar Lake Loop intersection. The trail continues with a tricky creek crossing and a rooted cascade to the shore of Pine Lake. There is a narrow plank boardwalk along the water's edge.

Neither Cedar Lake nor Pine Lake provide grand vistas, but each lake is pleasantly tranquil.

 Going straight up the wide lower trail is steep and unpleasant as a climb and not much fun coming down. Lots of hikers too
