This is a good stout climb (500 foot elevation change) but there are some breaks and a chance to catch your breath every so often. Follow the cairns (small piles of rocks) and stay off the moss. Big Rock Trail takes you across granite domes with great views. When you emerge on top of Cedar Rock you have a panoramic view of the expanse of DuPont State Recreational Forest.
- Cross over Cascade Lake Road and take Corn Mill Shoals Trail and turn left on the Big Rock Trail.
