Groomed trail, very wide & flat with a boardwalk section. Great creekside scenery amid giant trees makes it seem like you're further in the forest than you are

I walked this in late-April via a closed-to-vehicles Going-to-the-Sun Road. It's a very easy and pretty boardwalk trek with lots of photo opps. Pick this if you're looking for a nice, tree-canopied stroll.

Beautiful scenery with wooden walkway for most. Great for smaller kids! Several areas close to gorgeous streams.

Very easy trail. Had a lot of people on it and was super quick. There is a definite beauty in the trees and the boardwalk through them. I would consider this more of a stroll after completing the Avalanche Trail to Avalanche Lake.

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!
