Alabaster Caverns State Park Trail System
The Alabaster Caverns State Park Trail System is comprised of four easy to moderate trails. Also known as the Cedar Canyon Trail System, visitors can choose between two 1/2-mile trails, a 2/3-mile trail and a 3/4-mile trail.
The Raptor's Roost Trail, which is named for the birds of prey often spotted there, begins near the cavern entrance and runs for 2/3-mile. This easy pathway will take you around the southern rim of Cedar Canyon and is recommended for all skill levels.
The Little Black Bear Trail is named after the bears that once roamed the area. This trail is also a 1/2-mile in length and runs from the park office area to the Canyon Campground at the bottom of Cedar Canyon. Visitors on this easy to moderate hiking trail will also pass Owl Cave, one of the park's natural caves.
Named after a 200 pound white wolf that roamed Woodward County in the late 1800s, Old Two-Toes Trail runs from near the Cavern entrance, through Cedar Canyon and over to an area where the Natural Bridge once stood. This 3/4-mile long trail is recommended for intermediate hikers and above because of the strenuous uphill walking.
Also a 1/2-mile in length is the Freedom Trail. This easy to moderate trail requires some uphill walking and runs from the Little Black Bear Trail along Cedar Creek to the bottom of Cedar Canyon.
