This is a beautiful and easy walk to do. Mostly on a raised wooden boardwalk, so would be easy to do with young children or babies in strollers. The old growth cedars are magnificent and so green! We really enjoyed this walk!

It had been raining for 2 days straight so we ventured out, tired of being cooped up in the room. Figured that since this was a boardwalk, we wouldn't get too muddy. We didn't get muddy but feet were still soaked. Sleet started coming down heavily and despite the trees, don't expect any cover! Very suitable for toddlers, completely wheelchair... More

Close enough to Apgar that we could have driven here ourselves but we were short on time. Stopped here on the red bus tour. It's a very low effort walk and was really interesting. Wish we could have spent more time here.

This trail is right iff the road. It is a raised wooden path that is flat. This is a must for all ages to enjoy the cedars and hemlocks! Worth the 30-45 minute walk

Loved the tall trees and sounds of the birds and rivers. This is a boardwalk primarily, and an easy walk so take it slow and drink in nature. Also is a nice beginning and end to the Avalanche Lake trail.

This was a nice quite walk. If you are pressed for time maybe skip it but enjoyable all the same. Water is my thing and there are no falls on this trail so all depends on your preferences.

With so much beauty all around I wasn't expecting too much from a walk in the woods. I'm happy to report it was well worth the visit. The morning we visited the Trail of the Cedars it was raining and the mountains were cloud covered with little visibilty, so it semed an ideal time for a walk where we could... More

A very moderate and relaxing trail. It is perfect for the day after you do a more strenuous hike and your knees need a break. The trees are gorgeous and it is so calming to be engulfed in them. There are moments during the trail that there is an opening in the path that leads to a beautiful opening to... More

Tie it into Avalanche Gorge for a lovely moderate hike. The Gorge is amazing with the force of water all around you. The Cedar loop is boardwalked for handicap accessibility
