The Cedar Ridge Trail begins near the Ebenezer Church Road Bridge Gate to Umstead Park and provides a connection to the main Reedy Creek Multiuse Trail
that traverses the park. It is a fine gravel road surface that is about doubletrack wide with a gradual ascent about 1.5 miles in length to reach the Reedy Creek MUT.
At the very beginning, you'll need to cross Sycamore Creek. During low water flows, the creek can be crossed easily; it is normally about 15 feet wide.
