Cedar Creek Falls
A trickle of a waterfall feeds into a pond of vibrant green water that was deep enough to cushion a 30-foot cliff jump. These days, most refer to this spot as Cedar Creek Falls. The area now requires a day permit for visitation, cliff-jumping is prohibited, and hikers are cautioned to plan for extreme heat conditions. It’s a five-mile roundtrip from the Ramona trailhead, and the all-uphill exit requires ample hydration.
