In August, I hiked the Cedar Falls Trail at Petit Jean State Park. The .9-mile non-loop trail (1.8-miles total) starts behind the Mather Lodge and then heads downhill for .3 miles or so to Cedar Creek.
The trail then follows Cedar Creek until reaching the gorgeous Cedar Falls cavern.
The climb back up to Mather Lodge is strenuous so don’t be in too big of a hurry on the way back.
