Trip Planner: USA / Montana / Glacier National Park / Trail of the Cedars
Passing through a verdant forest of centuries-old hemlocks and red cedars, Trail of the Cedars is an easy loop hike that provides an insider's perspective on Glacier National Park. You'll get to walk along a raised boardwalk on the eastern side of the loop before reaching the highlight of the hike--a footbridge over the lower Avalanche Gorge. Take some time to soak up the views of glacial water cascading through the narrow gorge before heading on towards the lake and the campground. This wheelchair-accessible trail starts and ends on the Going-To-The-Sun Road, which is a very popular trailhead, so parking may be hard to find during the peak season.

Trail of the Cedars reviews
The walk is very easy and the cedars are impressive. If you continue on the Avalance Lake, you need to add the posted distance for Cedars and Avalance so it's about 7 miles.

Took this because it is where the avalanche lake trail starts. Its great because there are no hills or steps. Best no frills walk in the park.
