HikingNo shade

Turned out to be a firebreak road, was not expecting that, great for running or mountain biking- not much shade cover but offers a nice breeze and great views of Ross peak and bridger mountain range.

Good trail, not many bugs. Part of the upper loop of this trail is paved, and we did see a couple cars on that section, but no other hikers for the entire trail. Nice riverside walk.

I did this hike a couple of times this summer. The first time was great! Got to the parking lot at 8am and was lucky enough to snag a spot right after a car left. Get there EARLY because parking can be hard to find. The first time I went up, there wasn’t as many people and the majority were wearing masks, including myself because this is known to be a congested hike. The weather was great and I made it up to the lake a little before 10am & I walked along the lake and found a nice rock to sit on & jump in the ice-cold lake. Definitely refreshing on a hot day... not so much when it’s cloudy and windy!! That’s how it was the second time I went up- and there were even more people that time and the majority didn’t have masks! (If that concerns you. I think of it as more of a respect thing & general health safety) There was also no common sense or hiking etiquette being displayed which was extremely frustrating for me. I also picked up a couple masks, some baby socks, and two handfuls of trash that day. Plus I had my teenage brother with me & his unappreciative friends. I guess I was also running on 2 hours of sleep & no food so yeah the second time around was not great. I’d do this hike either really early or on a lucky day with less traffic.

HikingGreat!

Did this hike on Thursday August 6th. Beautiful hike deep in woods following a river into lake avalanche. When we got to the lake we provided first aid to a woman who was chased by a grizzly after surprising the grizzly in the water. Injuries - scratches- from a fall. All was somewhat surreal. Park rangers informed and on it pretty quick. Grizzly was across the lake. Over 50 people watching the Bear. Did not want to attack anyone. Hike itself very heavily trafficked (we got there at 10 am and found someone pulling out right when we arrived) We were done by 1. Lots of families on this one.

HikingGreat!

short and easy hike, and the lake at the end is simply breathtaking. took us close to 5 hours since we had to park down the road which added another 45 walk to the trailhead. we started at 9 am and the parking lot was already full - get there early and enjoy the lake! if you get there later not only you won't have parking, but the crowds will change the lake experience.

HikingGreat!

Definitely download the map before going. I still ended up taking an unintended route that was much shorter than I planned. Next time I will take a different fork in the road. If you go down to the main trail entrance with the dog waste bag dispenser, you cut off a lot of flat kind of dull hiking through lots of prairie dogs

This a great trail for hiking with kids or on horseback. It’s very pretty with lots of wildflowers. The trail is very well maintained and there are some picnic tables right at the end to have a nice break.

HikingGreat!

The trail starts through beautiful cedars and before it heads up the hillside are amazing falls! The hike up was easy and busy! We were able to see a grizzly at the lake that had a hiker’s backpack! We then headed back to start our decent down to find the grizzly had everyone trees at the lake where you needed to head down. Eventually we took off with a group and bear spray in hand. We did not see the bear again. Later found out the park service closed the trail! I would still recommend this trail as it is beautiful! Be prepared and travel together! Bear was on 8/6 when we hiked. Posting on 8/8.

So so beautiful!! Make sure to get there super early or late afternoon, if not finding parking is nearly impossible.

We went Aug 5 and got there 7am, where there was maybe more than 1/4 parking left. The trail of the cedars was easy and beautiful. The remaining trail to avalanche lake was also quite lovely, although the real gem is the views at the lake. Only downside: Trail was very crowded and most people did not wear masks.

HikingGreat!

This was an easy-to-follow trail that was beautiful the whole way! Near the end there is a pit toilet, which is gross with no toilet paper, but much better than nothing! The final destination is beautiful - I definitely recommend hiking all the way to the far side of the lake, but make sure to bring water shoes! My only complaint was the high popularity of the trail - we were passing people the whole way, and at one point were even forced to slow down due to the amount of people. Overall, this isn’t a trail for those who like to rough it off the beaten path, but if you want to spend time in nature with a large payoff at the end, then this is the hike for you!

HikingNo shade

Trail isn't closed. This is a nice easy trail but I would skip it if you have less time in the park. 90% in the sun so bring a hat and wear sunblock. Limited parking. 5.5 miles down a gravel road. The views were just ok.

A pleasant moderate-slope loop through meadows and forests. Most of the beaver ponds were not super-impressive but overall this trail has gorgeous mountain and meadow scenery without a lot of effort. It can be hot in the sun but it was faintly breezy once we got up the hill a bit and that made all the difference.

Gorgeous hike through the cedars. I recommend going to the shore on the far end where there are fewer people.

Not too busy for a trail so close to town. Could hear noise from road work along east shore.

Did this around 230 on a Monday. We found parking quickly. It was still quite hot outside, but the trail is shaded throughout. Lighting at the lake is definitely better in the afternoon, and I think that next time I’ll plan to go later on to avoid the heat and crowds. I really loved the creek views just above the Avalanche Lake turnoff, and would recommend that others keeping to the trail of cedars try to at least tackle that first hill beyond to get some nice views of the rapids.

Hiking

Beautiful trail through huge cedar trees, then a fairly easy climb near a rushing creek, then a walk through a forest with nice views of surrounding mountains, ending with a pretty lake with mountains and waterfalls in the distance. There’s great birding along this trail for birdwatchers. I would give it 5 stars but it’s not as good as Hidden lake overlook and the high line trail at Logan pass. All are spectacular- you can’t go wrong. Just get there early! We arrived by 7:00am and the lot was almost full!

This is Avalanche Lake. 5.6 mile hike. 750 foot elevation gain. There are probably prettier places in this world, but I haven't seen them.

Great bang for your hiking buck! Avalanche Lake might be the prettiest glacial lake in the park, with its deep turquoise hues and several waterfalls feeding into it from cliffs rising hundreds of feet above level. Great hike as a jump off point for your Glacier trip. Bring a swimsuit and hop in the lake before heading back.

Arrived at Cedar’s at 7:15 and parking was available but filling up. Great walk up and back, with traffic building on the way down. Lots of deer families sharing the trail!
