You certainly have to go to Leonard Harrison State Park if you're here at Cedar Run, and why not head up to Ski Sawmill and strap some skis to your feet. Cedar Run is right by the Tumbling Run Trail, and nearby you discover fine places like Hamilton Hollow. A river like this is too good to miss. Cedar Run is not far at all from Gaines, and why not take a refreshing hike along the Red Rock Trail.
