A pleasant walk that offers wildlife views and that of a forest floor littered with the endangered running cedar.

Running Cedar gets is name from the endangered and protected evergreen that runs along the forest floor. This easy short trail begins in the camping area and ends on Lakeside Trail. Song birds fill the forest especially in the early morning hours and at twilight. Warblers in particular like this forest and are difficult to spot since they remain high in the trees but they are easy to hear.
