Cedar Mt. 2.22.08

Although Cedar Mt. only is a lowly 896' it provided more of a memorable day than any other peak I have climbed. Cedar Mt. is located above Maple Valley between Spring and Desire Lakes. I was joined by 2 yr old daughter for some much needed father daughter bonding time. There is an access road at the end of the Spring Lake Road just past the public fishing access. We followed the road until we reached the Peak Trail. Although our progress was slow it was steady we made it to the peak trail in short order. I didn't know how she would react to the much steeper trail but from the onset she made it quite obvious that she wanted to do this on her own. I had to laugh as we neared the summit she wanted to run as if she knew we were close. As the warm sun shined on us she tagged her first peak. She was so excited she concocted a summit dance. I can only hope that this day is one that can be repeated many times in the near future. Pressed for time she rode on my shoulders until we regained the access road.

Approx 2 miles 400ft of climb 1:30 car to car
