Great starting trail! First trail we walked upon arrival at Glacier. Easy walk, handicap accessible. Take the side trail to go up the falls a way. Small parking area that fills up quickly.

What a neat place to hike with the kids. Lots of really neat dead tree root balls, beautiful living trees and a very enjoyable hike! :{)

Huge cedar trees on this walk. It's all wooden boardwalk so could take a stroller on it. From this area is also the hike to Avalance Lake.

Trail of the Cedars is one of our very favorite places in Glacier park. The short trip through the area on a boardwalk makes it accessible for youngsters and those in wheelchairs. The cedars, ferns and other plants are thick and beautiful. There is a...More

If you want to hike to Avalanche Lake, you must take at least part of the Trail of the Cedars to the trailhead. Part of the trail is boardwalk. It’s logical to take the walk to the Avalanche Lake trailhead, hike the trail to the...More

A good short hike through a forest but pretty crowded. I would suggest to go early or late in the day. Most of the trail is on a boardwalk.
