Location: Cedar Hill State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 7.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: There is a new piece of trail on the bike trail. Take the trail toward the lake from the trail head (hiker direction) and continue down toward the split with a section heading east (2.5 mile loop back to the trail head along a bit of access route 5) and one south (long route). Trail map is here. The new trail splits off west toward the lake just before the trail split at access 5. It will take you down to the lake level and then back up to the original trail a little south of where you left it. This trail is very nice but be careful. If you only wanted a hike of a little over 2.5 miles, you will have to watch carefully to take the closed (to bike traffic so step over the branches) trail back north to access 5 or continue south to access 6 to the dirt road then north to the top of the trail system (turn left to the trail head). The new section has not yet been noted on the trail maps.
