There are many trails to walk throughout this park and our expectations were high for this as it is advertised everywhere but the trail is short and the views are not all that great

Easily accessible trail takes you through the woods. Haiku signboards along the way add to the serenity of this easy hike. Much of it is a boardwalk. The trail is a loop of less than a mile. Trees, rushing water, and even a waterfall!

Boardwalk and concrete along the trail, very easy and handicapped accessible. Beautiful views along the way, little to no elevation, and truly a hike for just about anyone.

This is hard parking so get there EARLY. Short walk and wheelchair friendly. Most impressive gorge waterfall. I could have watched it for an hour. Take this to find the somewhat strenuous walk to Avalanche Lake. Worth the hike but BRING FOOD and water protection.

This hike is more of a walk along the board walk, so nice and easy. The cedar,hemlock trees were magnificent. Lots to look at and take in without killing yourself.

This was my first taste of Glacier National Park and it was breath-taking. Seems like this may be a hidden gem. Pretty easy trail (relatively speaking) if you do the trail to the gorge. (Which is highly reccomended!!) Popping out into the gorge will take...More

This is a very easy trail, wheelchair accessible, that leads to a spectacular gorge. If you are going to Glacier, don't miss this trail. There are restrooms along the way and places to sit. The cedar fragrance is wonderful.

The Trail of Cedars is a very easy walking path, even wheel chair accessible. I enjoyed that as it is the gateway to Avalance Lake. This is a fairly steep climb, but the views of the banks of Avalanche Creek are incredible. If I were...More

To see the park at your own pace it is best to drive your own car. If you are staying within the National Park, you may be able to take advantage of the shuttle bus service, however, they may not stop for the trail of... More
