This hike was absolute amazing! We parked at Logan's pass around 9:00 in the morning and hiked to the Loop where we took the shuttle back to Logan's pass around 4:00. When we arrived at the Loop there nobody else waiting to get on the shuttle. Although it was very cloudy most of the time, we were still able to... More

The trail begins at the Logan Pass Summit parking lot. Parking is at a premium most days so take the shuttle if you can. The hike as far as Haystack Butte does not have a lot of elevation gain and the views are spectacular so be prepared for many people on the trail. There is a narrow ledge at the... More

Thanks to all of the detailed reviews below we were able to plan our day. We got up to Logan from the west by 8am (1.5 hour drive from Whitefish with no traffic!). The hike has awesome views of not just the mountains but of mountain goats and big horn sheep. A fair number of people on the trail but... More

We started later than we wanted at 1pm, starting at Logan Pass & ending at the Loop. We're in reasonable shape, could shed a few pounds :) Reached the parking lot at 6:45pm with a few stops, lunch & pictures (of course!) When we do it again, we'll start earlier so not to feel pressured at the end. The hike... More

Our final hike of the trip- departed just before 10am as temps dropped and clouds had moved in. After rim rock section ( not as scary as I anticipated- there's plenty of room on trail) clouds moved in and felt like walking in heaven! The full hike to the loop was long, but not strenuous at all. All the climbing... More

We did this hike as a through hike from Logan Pass to the Loop, including the spur trail up to the Grinnell Glacier overlook. All told its about 13.5 miles one way. You can go out and back from Logan's Pass to Haystack which is about 6 or 7 miles round trip or go to Granite Park Chalet and back... More

Thanks to all the T.A. Travelers for warning us about the the early start that is necessary to enjoy this Glacier National Park hike! (you weren't kidding :) This amazing hike is an awesome experience if you go EARLY and can leverage the free park shuttle system. Since we were staying in Whitefish, we had to leave around 6AM in...

Prior to our arrival to Glacier National Park, my husband researched the hiking trails and decided upon the Highline loop trail. It was magnificent!! The views were phenomenal in every direction, at every turn! We saw mountain goats, long horned sheep, and plenty of Marmots. We heard from another hiking couple that they had seen a bear walking on the... More

My husband and I started the 12 mile hike at Logan Pass (roughly 9:00a), and were rewarded with beautiful views right away. He had to keep stopping for me, because I was busy taking pictures! We saw some big horn sheep above us around mile 3 or 4, and we stopped to eat lunch around the "big boulders and snow... More

We got in line early at Apgar to catch the first express shuttle up to Logan Pass at 7:00 A.M. Fortunately we were the last ones on our shuttle. (They need to increase capacity or run more shuttles at peak demand times, otherwise people are forced to drive to their destinations, as we did on one other occasion.) We hiked... More
