Trail of the Cedars Professional Reviews and Guides
"This self-guiding nature trail forms a semi-loop through old-growth forest in the bottoms of Avalanche Creek. Avalanche Gorge lies at the apex of the loop, with swirling waters and sculpted argillite walls.
The northern leg of the trail follows a boardwalk, while the southern leg is paved, with benches along the way so hikers can stop and enjoy the grandeur of the forest. The entire loop is wheelchair accessible. The trailhead is about 0.3 mile from the parking lot."
--Erik Molvar, Best Easy Day Hikes: Glacier and Waterton National Parks (Falcon Guides).
"This most popular trail in Glacier gently winds through a grove of western red cedars where the understory seldom receives much sunlight. Inviting and easy, the paved and boardwalk loop is replete with interpretive signs, benches, and a footbridge over gushing Avalanche Creek."
--Jean Arthur, Top Trails: Glacier National Park: Must-Do Hikes for Everyone (Wilderness Press).
