The hike will begin where Cedar Creek crosses the 100 block of ES 11th Street, just east of Joe Allen's Bar-B-Que. Hikers will travel north along the banks of Cedar Creek to Stevenson Park then return by the same trail. The hike is approximately 3 miles long. Parking will be available at 170 ES 11th Street. Signage will be on location to direct participants to the designated parking area.
