Cedar Creek Falls is both beautiful and can provide some welcome shade depending on the time of day.

Easy hike down and back. Be prepared to wade across the creek 3 times on the way to and from falls. Just walk barefoot. 6mi — 3h 00m

Before going here, know you need a permit to actually visit the falls. Google Cleveland National Parks permits and you should be able to figure it out 6mi — 1h 35m
