Actually visited Ross Creek Cedar Grove twice in October and enjoyed it both times. I had read about Ross Creek Cedars and then heard from others about it and was not disappointed on my visit. The area is amazing and worth the short trip south....More

I take all my friends here when they visit me and Sandpoint Idaho. It's a lovely day trip with beautiful scenery along the way. Going to Ross Creek Cedars is like going to church for me.

We stopped in Troy, Mt visitors center and was told about this place! I am glad we stopped. Beautiful walk through the cedars. Informative and enjoyed the walk with our dog.

Watch for the sign or you might miss it! Only four miles off the highway, good road into the cedars. It's just so quiet and smells so good. You'll be tipping your head upwards for the duration.

The only other time I have been to see such a big old growth forest is the California Redwoods. They are not quite as big but the smell and serenity will transport you back to a more sedate time.

We took a side trip to this park from Hwy 2 near Troy. Best part besides the big cedars was we saw deer in the forest on the trail. A bit like a fairy tale. 5 miles single lane paved road from the highway.

We visited after the fire so the 5 mile path was closed but the rest was open. This place is so quiet and comfortable. Easy pathways to walk, places for kids to explore, and more. Learning the history of the park was incredible along with...More
