Blue Cedar Trail
Route from Clear Creek bridge in LSCR to a box canyon in the Stoney Creek drainage
||4.0 km (return)
||Linear - Return
To get to the trailhead, you will need to bike or hike about 8 km along the Seymour Valley Trailway to the Clear Creek Bridge. This is a 45 minute bike ride one way, and longer to hike, so add this to your time estimate
Once you reach the bridge, cross it, and hunt for a set of orange tapes heading uphill near the north bank of a tributary of Clear Creek which is usually dry. The route will take you through second growth forest, then it begins climbing up another old creek bed into a valley below the cliffs of the Needles Ridge. It is a rough route through deadfall, some slick rock, and if not for the odd tape, you'd call it a bushwhack.
Eventually you will reach a belt of old growth cedars, and soon after you emerge into a slide boulder field lined with bigleaf maple trees. Follow this up to the base of some cliff bands, where the trail ends. Proceeding beyond this point involves expert scrambling and /or the use of climbing gear. Helmet suggested, as rockfall can be an issue here
