Cedar Crest Trail


If you are in the Bloomington area and are looking for a short, scenic hike, check out the trail at the Sycamore Land Trust headquarters office, also known as Cedar Crest. The HHC built this 1/2 mile loop trail in 2016. It meanders along a natural ravine, eventually dropping to a small creek at the bottom. It follows along that stream, then loops back up to the start at the office. True to its name, one interesting highlight of this hike is an area with a lot of hemlock and cedar.
