1/2 day hikes

In West Glacier area, The only hike I see highly recommended is Avalanche Lake/ Trail of the Cedars. Any other recommendations? Or should I plan the rest of my trip in East Glacier?

Many of us prefer the hikes on the east side of Glacier or at Logan Pass (note that East Glacier Park is a town that is close to hiking in Two Medicine, but farther from the east side of the GTTSR and Many Glacier).

Some other half-day or less hikes on the west side are Apgar Lookout, Rocky Point, and Johns Lake Loop (the trail connects several GTTSR pullouts along McDonald creek). There are also some full-day hikes.
