We'll do the Cedar Run/White Oak Canyon loop but take time to stop and learn about the flowers on the way down Cedar Run. This will add about an hour to the trip. Cedar Run goes through several climate zones on the way down the mountain so we'll see a wide variety of spring wildflowers. If you have a need to be in constant motion, this is not your hike.

Required Items to Bring:
- Sturdy hiking shoes
- Water
- Lunch
- Weather-appropriate clothing (it's cooler and wetter on the mountain ridge)
