I went in the off hours... just before sunset. During the day, the area is so congested the park service has to direct the overflow parking traffic.

We had planned on walking this trail as part of the Avalanche Lake Trail. While Avalanche Lake Trail was closed due to the fire, we were still able to walk this little hike. Very nice. It is a very flat and easy trail but beautiful...More

This was a very nice stroll through some HUGE trees! Reminded me of Olympic National park area. Very quite and peaceful place.

This is a gorgeous short loop through woods with views of some falls and cool old tree uprooted. One of my favorite hikes. So peaceful. Flat and easy for all levels.

Took the hike when the wildfires were burning in the Sprague fire. The trees provided some nice cover and the air seemed a little cleaner in the area. The hike itself is a fairly short and simple (flat) 1 mile loop right off the Going...More

This was our final stop of the day and after hiking 13+ miles we were extremely glad for the brevity and the shade. As soon as you step onto the boardwalk it feels like you are in a different park. The air is moist and...More

I'd totally recommend this hike for anyone who would be unable to do the larger more difficult hikes. It takes you through a beautiful forest with huge trees, a creek, and more. I also used this to get to the Avalanche Lake trailhead.

You would need to check with the park rangers. It is well hidden with trees so if you can get there I suspect it would be "do-able". Look at weather if you cannot reach a ranger. I always got a recording when I called, but... More

Trail of Cedars is the first half mile or so of the Avalanche Lake Trail, but the TOC then loops off to the left. So if you do the entire TOC (which is a loop), you end up back at the Avalanche Lake trailhead, not further up... More

To see the park at your own pace it is best to drive your own car. If you are staying within the National Park, you may be able to take advantage of the shuttle bus service, however, they may not stop for the trail of... More
