Cedar Mountain Road is a short out-and-back trail near Cody. The trail is mostly level and made up of loose dirt and small rocks. It is a narrow shelf road, about one vehicle wide, with occasional spots to pass. The view is great from start to finish, and from the top, you can see for miles out over the city. The most difficult obstacle is an optional hill climb and descent right at the bottom, with loose rocks and a hairpin turn on one side of the hill. The most difficult obstacle on the main trail is a moderate rutted section near the bottom, also full of loose rock and dirt. There are dispersed camping sites along the whole trail. Near the top is a short hiking trail leading to a cave system. The cave is gated off, and if you want to explore it, you need to get a key and permit from the Cody Resource Area. The higher campsites can get extremely windy, especially in a soft-sided rooftop tent.
