You will pass many large Cedar stumps with the living one being the centre of attention. After the large Cedar, towards the falls, you will cross these dry creekbeds and there is a nice view across to the otherside of Lynn Creek at each one. Right after the large cedar, there is a trail that leads you to the creek. Id imagine in the summer when the creek is shallow, people cross to the otherside and loop around/connect with other trails in the area.

Kennedy falls is also amazing. There are shallow areas that I would imagine you can swim in, I went during winter and the flow was too heavy, and dangerous to manoeuvre across the falls.
Downside Trail IS NOT labeled on the hike so you better take a pic of the map at the parking lot before you do this hike. There is just one sign that points you to Big Cedar Trail but it is on the road, not at the trails itself. Trail is also extremely muddy, and slippery. Wear proper shoes, and dont step on the logs.
