Short, easy walk on a boardwalk. Beautiful trees. Definitely worth the short stop.

Nice, easy trail with plenty of diverse plant life. The cedars were somewhat of a surprise. I hadn't really thought about cedars being a part of Glacier for some reason.

This easy loop trail is one of the most popular and busiest trail in the park, parking is difficult to find if not there early and the trail is very busy owing to its easability of access and difficulty level. Additionally, this is also the trailhead for the Avalanche Lake Trail. While there are some interesting and pretty scenes along the trail, if you don’t get there early and beat the crowds, in my opinion, it is not worth the effort. For the same reasons I would also avoid the Avalanche Lake Trail, as there are many waterfalls and picturesque lakes within the park with better access and fewer people.

Beautiful, easy trail/boardwalk. A wonderful example of an old growth forest that we don't often see A great place to have a quiet visit and reflect on how amazing nature is!
