Note

The Trail of the Cedars is an easy, wheelchair accessible nature walk through the lush forests of Glacier National Park. Located just off the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road, the trailhead begins from the nearby parking lot. As with most places in the park, parking lots fill up by noon. It is always advised to start early or to use the park’s shuttle system to get where you need to go. The trail is just over a half mile in length and is comprised of paved paths and boardwalks, making it a great way for all visitors to experience the wonders of the park. Be sure to stop at the bridge overlooking Avalanche Gorge (pictured). Watching the turquoise water flow through polished rock walls is a definite highlight. Those interested in a longer, more challenging hike can take the hike to Avalanche Lake, which begins at the fork in the Trail of the Cedars near Avalanche Gorge. // Little known: Some of the cedars along the trail are over 80 feet tall.
