We usually stop along the Going-to-the-Sun road a couple of times to take in the view or for a picnic or short hike. One of our favourite things to do with the kids is the Trail of the Cedars. It’s an easy stroll and as mentioned above, it has various sections of raised boardwalk making it easily accessible to people with strollers. It’s a short .7 miles and is a perfect little walk for the whole family. For more experienced hikers the trail splits and you can continue on to Avalanche lake or loop around through the cedars and be done.
With numerous places to pull off the road, the views from Going-to-the-Sun are incredible and of course warrant a few photos. If you make the trip, be sure to stop often going both ways, there are so many beautiful waterfalls and mountain ranges to see.
Watch for tunnels, waterfalls, the weeping wall and various wildlife. If you’re not the one driving, be ready with your window rolled down and camera ready to capture what you see. This little mountain goat had traffic stopped for a short time as he made his way across the road and my daughter snapped this quick photo of him as we drove by.
