“Nice leisurely walk in the trees.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A fairly level (flat) walk. Many sections of the walk were covered with a wooden boardwalk. Lots of people on the trail. It is a loop trail and at the mid-point there was a lovely small waterfall in a small gorge. I'm happy to say I didn't find any mosquitoes.

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The Trail of the Cedars has always been a favorite for me. It's easy enough that I could take the kids when they were little. And yet the beauty of the old forest of cedars and the waterfall and creek in such a peaceful setting continues to be great now that the kids have grown up. I don't consider this a "hike" because there is almost no uphill or downhill parts - in fact a good part of it is on boardwalks. It can be done in less than an hour - buy why zip through it? Stroll along and enjoy it!

“A nice little easy nature walk.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Had a nice little stroll around this accessible nature trail. The kids loved looking at all the beautiful trees and hearing the birds singing. Wouldn't have taken us very long to walk it but a trip to Avalanche lake on another trail took us off on another adventure.

“A short, scenic, accessible trail”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This trail is a very easy hike through beautiful old growth trees. Although the boardwalk is usually not crowded, parking is challenging, especially in 2013 while the road in this area is undergoing construction. I recommend this hike as an early morning stroll to start your day or an evening stroll to relax and slow down just before sunset. The light through the trees is best at these times of the day.

“Short, easy walk”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Loved this trail! While parking can be a challenge, the trail was easy and beautiful. The trees provide a canopy of shade and the walk is short. You are always rewarded with a beautiful waterfall.
