Ancient Cedars



We love hiking trails, and the more off-the-beaten-path, the better. Last month we took our last summer hike on the Settlers Grove of Ancient Cedars in the Idaho National Forest near Murray, Idaho.

The giant cedars seemed to loom closer to us the further along the trail we walked. A creek runs through the grove, giving the kids plenty of places to splash. As we moved deeper into the shadowy forest, an eerie sensation took over and I almost felt like the towering trees might come alive and start grabbing at us. Funny how the imagination works.

It's a gentle trail, great for young and old. Our round-trip hike was about two miles, but you can turn around at any point for a shorter walk.

Wow, those are big trees. Or very small people, one of the two.

I love traveling to the cedar grove. It is especially nice when it is really hot, because it is a nice respite from the warm weather. Next year you should check out Shadow Falls and Fern Falls, a ways further up the river. You would love it as well.
