Alder creekDirections

11 miles east of Glennville via State Highway 155 and Alder Creek Road (25S04)

Notes: Cedar Creek
Two campgrounds serve the area at Cedar Creek and Alder Creek. Both of these creeks are planted seasonally by CDFW with rainbows near the campgrounds. The Cedar Creek Fire burned through this area in 2016 and the Cedar Creek campground had been closed until Oct 1018. Some populations of wild trout exist within both of the creeks away from the campgrounds. Unknown what their current status is.
