I hiked this trail in September 2012. Depending on your physical condition, it can be an all day hike.It's worth it though. The views are outstanding. One not of caution though: this trail, at points, has severe drop offs. If you misstep, you can fall. It's not for those who are afraid of heights. Bring plenty of water, and be... More

This was one of two longer hikes that we had planned to take during out time at Glacier. We got the first mile and a half easily-the early walk has a handrail on the right and nothing on the left. In the woody section we walked around a bend, and there was a large, brown, grizzly bear walking along the... More

We hiked with our children to Haystack Butte from Logan's Pass. It took about 6 hours including breaks. We climbed to the top of the haystack and I took a nap for a few minutes. There are goats on the trail. You walk alone the cliff-- the path is wide but if you step off you would die so make... More

Parking is horrendous at Logan Pass. Ideally you park at The Loop shuttle stop, just west of Logan, ride the shuttle back to Logan and then enjoy the hike from Logan to the Loop, a little over 11 miles. Then you don't have to worry about hurrying to catch the free shuttle. Your car is waiting. FYI, If you are... More

We just hiked the first 2 miles of this amazing trail out of Logan's Pass because we could see people hiking on it from the Hidden Lake hike. It's kind of scary (most of the path is 3 feet wide or so), and it runs along the Mountain wall. There are chains to hang onto if you feel more comfortable... More

The highline trail is one of the best in the park. The first section from Logan Pass to Granite Chalet is absolutely stunning. The section from the chalet to the Loop is a four mile, steeply downhill trek that was a bit hard on the knees, but well worth it!

This is a great hiking trail with amazing views but be prepared to walk along narrow paths at great heights and you might be delayed if Big Horn Sheep decide to rest along the narrow trail and there's no way to pass!

It is a pleasant hike but the scenery is not nearly as impressive as the Grinnell Glacier hike (although this hike is more accessible).

This is a very hikeable trail. The elevation gain is easy because the elevation is added moderately. There is a scary ledge to walk along at the beginning. However, I was okay and I hate heights. We hiked Logan’s Pass to the Chalet and then to The Loop. The path from the chalet to the loop is steep and traverses... More
