The Trail of the Cedars begins across from the Avalanche Campground Ranger Station. The trail is a wheelchair accessible nature trail through a mature cedar/hemlock forest. This is also the beginning of the Avalanche Lake Trail, a 2 1/10-mile (3km) hike to the foot of Avalanche Lake, one of the most popular day-hikes in the park. The trailhead is about 5 and 1/2 miles (9km) north of Lake McDonald Lodge, just past the Avalanche Creek Campground.
