A VISITOR PERMIT IS NOW REQUIRED FOR CEDAR CREEK FALLS. The permit is not for parking, you must have a visitor permit to be at the falls. So bring your permit with you to the falls.The only place to get a permit is through recreation.com Also, THE PERMIT IS NOT THE ADVENTURE PASS. You must get the permit through recreation.gov, they will turn you around if you have an adventure pass or cite you if you are in permit area without a visitor permit. Law enforcement reguraly checks the falls to make sure everyone has a permit. I witnessed 3 people getting a citation for not having a permit. There is no jumping from the cliffs either as I witnessed two people recieve a citation for jumiping from the cliffs. This is no joke!! Also, they do not sell them at the trailhead or at the falls and it is a long drive and hike to get the falls and they will turn you around .25 miles from the falls if you don't have a permit or cite you if you are in the falls area. One final thing, don't bring your dog. This trail is especially bad for dogs no matter what condition you think your dog is in. Ranger said there are multiple dog deaths every year and people all say the same thing, "my dog is fine," until they are having to carry their dog out in 100 degree weather. Have Fun!!

Ceder creek falls is awesome while you are at the swimming hole and waterfall. Definately better in early spring. We saw a snake down by the water, but it wasn't poisonous. Definately fun place to swim.

Cedar Creek Falls requires a pretty rigorous hike in and out to get to the swimming hole. Best advice I can give is to wear good hiking boots or shoes, and bring lots of water. Try not to drink too much on the way in, because you'll want the majority of it for the way out.

The hike itself is open and exposed to the sun the basically the entire time. You do get a good view of Mildred Falls on the opposite side of the valley. The vertical gain/loss of this hike is over 1000 ft, so prepare yourself.

There really are two trails that lead to Ceder Creek Falls. The hike from the Ramona side is "easier" and quicker to get to, but that being said, it is not easy. The Ramona trail is also not marked as well as the other and actually requires you to cross over private property.
