Cedar Creek Trail. This is a long trail so we decided to go out for 90 minutes and then return. About 2 miles into the trail we came upon “Cedar Falls” which was nice but paled with respect to the Rainbow Falls in Stehekin Washington.

This is a fairly easy hike whose prize is the attractive falls about an hour into the hike. Good hike for people who are not used to hiking. Take a short movie of the falls,

Trail was large and well maintained lots of squirrels and chip monks. Scenery was stunning and it wasn't too strenuous.

Great hike year round just 20 minutes from Winthrop, WA. In winter you have to hike the road as well which makes it a little longer. A nice cool stream bed to follow in the summer.
