Description

This is by far the most popular trail to visit at Petit Jean. The first section of the trail descends rapidly into the creek valley by stone steps constructed by the CCC. The trail follows the creekbed until you reach Cedar Falls, a 90 foot waterfall. Here you'll often find locals swimming in the pool beneath the falls or eating lunch on the surrounding boulders.
