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.

Perfect hike for most anyone... Beautiful little tumbling falls, good informational signs. You can turn this into a longer hike up to a lake if you wish. Worth the time spent.

This is a 0.8 mile loop and the cedars smell great during the month of august. I suggest picking up avalanche lake trail at the end and making it a 5.8 mile hike. Worth the view

The towering trees, glimpses of rivers and waterfalls on a boardwalk trail is wonderful for all ages. Plenty of shade available. It's a loop.

Very easy boardwalk trail that leads back to the Avalanche Trailhead. Great for anyone at any age. Parking can be tough due to the popularity of Avalanche.

Those that left a negative review should be whipped. This is an easy trail and everyone knows it but it is a treasure. Filled with all kinds of beauty in huge trees, wildlife and waterfalls at the midway point. Unless your an adrenaline junkie that...More
