After a very wet winter in Southern California (my first winter here) I returned to Cedar Creek Falls to see them running in Spring. The difference to the first visit in October 2010 couldn’t possibly have been any bigger!
This is an archive post, written in 2015 and dated back to the original date of the hike and the photos. The photos have been re-evaluated and re-processed for this post.
My first hike in Southern California, on the last day of October. Cedar Creek Falls is one of the few waterfalls in San Diego County. Cedar Creek jumps down over granitic rock about 80 feet, into a little pool surrounded by granite cliffs. It can be reached from either the Saddleback trailhead (closer to Julian) or the San Diego County Estates trailhead (south of Ramona).
