Hike Cedar Creek Falls

AIGA Members: Free
Non-Members: Free

What better way to start the new year and to celebrate our 1 year AIGA hike anniversary than relaxing in a beautiful grotto next to a stunning waterfall. Yes, let's scratch the Cedar Creek Falls trail off our list early!

This moderate to strenuous 6 mile/4 hour hike will require some sweat and a little bit of patience. To begin, it's an easy stroll down the hill rewarded with a waterfall and a granola bar. Following, we come back up the trail one way or another! But no worries, we'll take our time and leave no one behind! Afterward, we'll treat ourselves to a well-deserved lunch for those wanting to join.

Cedar Creek Falls requires a permit and it's on a limited basis, so you must register by January 20 to have a spot!
