“One of Glacier's two wheelchair accessible trails, it takes you through the parks only cedar forest.”— Michael Faist
Starting either from the parking area or the Avalanche Campground, it's a loop trail. No matter which way you go you'll pass over Avalanche Creek, where the junction for the Avalanche Lake Trail begins. You'll run over a mixture of hard-packed gravel and boardwalks, through an ecosystem that wont be found anywhere else in the park. The peaceful stroll can get rather crowded, so come early if you want to avoid the rush.
