This loop is a short walk among giant cedars that survived both the 1910 Great Burn and the extensive logging that occurred at the beginning of the twentieth century. Sited on a 240-acre plot in the Marble Creek drainage, the trail was designated a Nation Natural Landmark in 1980. It consists of 2 intertwined loops, of which the shorter not even half a mile and the larger about twice that.

The trail moves among the cedars, many of which are hundreds of years old and appear to float on a bed of lady fern. A series of placards are found along the shorter, upper loop, as well as a bench.
