wonderful!

You need to at least hike to the canyon. Not very far but does gain elevation. Saw lots of mountain goats & beautiful wildflowers.

This is an easy hike with cables attached to the cliff to hold on to in one section. We saw many mountain goats. In fact one jumped out in front of us. It is 7 miles long, but you can stop and turn around whenever you become tired. Don't miss this one.

Views are incredible, not for anyone who fears exposed cliffs. Which I do, but the adrenaline and sheer beauty was amazing, still have goose bumbs a week later

Being from Melbourne, Australia we thought this reminded us of home! Such a cool concept, loved it! Could have spent a day walking around :)

This is a hike for walkers, it is fairly level and nearly constantly scenic. We enjoyed staying at the chalet, sunsets and flowers. There are hikes in the area for people who enjoy a challenge and places to wander.

The Highline Trail is perhaps the most beautiful and famous trail in all of America, and for good reason. It runs from Logan Summit all the way down to The Loop. Most people start at the top and walk down. Some begin at the top and walk only as far as they are able and return to the top. Thats... More

Our favorite trail in the park if and when its open. CAUTION - the first 100 yards or so require you walk on a ledge while holding on to a chain embedded in rock but once you get past there you're walking on top of the world. From anywhere on this trail you can see mountaintops for miles. Potential for... More

The tail runs above Going to the Sun Road & provides panoramic views of the park. The trail is wide, well maintained & easy to hike.

This was our favorite hike during our across-Canada and back across-the-United States trip. The initial part is a little interesting, as it is beneath a towering cliff...and at the edge of the trail it drops away...straight down! There's a handy cable mounted to cliff and it's a nice morale-booster. Don't get scared off! The cable ends but you really don't... More

It is difficult to surpass the Highline Trail for stunning vistas. Logan Pass is one of my favourite places on the planet. Just be forewarned, most guides you will find online tend to concentrate on the more scenic and popular stretch between Logan Pass and Haystack Butte, then skip to Granite Park Chalet at the end of the trail.
