This is a great trip for a beginner with a little experience. Cedar Creek is a slow running creek when it is not at flood stage.
There is lots of wild life not to mention a Loblolly pine that is 167 ft tall. We saw a river otter that made the trip a blast.
The vistor center was one of the nicest I have ever seen.
