Quick Facts

Audio Description, Trailhead

The 4.4 mile one-way (8.8 mile round-trip) Don Cecil Trail is a steep climb along the north-facing slope of Kings Canyon. If you're looking for a shorter hike, Sheep Creek Cascade is about a mile up the trail and offers a shady spot to sit and relax.

This historic trail was the major access route to Cedar Grove prior to the completion of Highway 180 in 1939. This trail is for day-use only; overnight camping is not allowed.
