The first part of this trail is a bit scary for height challenged people like me. I was a little shook by it, and even after we ran out of cable to hold on to, it was a little scary. When we first planned our trip to Glacier, I said, "No way!" but the more I looked at this trail,... More

We did this combined with the Loop. We left our car at the Loop and took the shuttle to Logans Pass to begin. We had heard that the beginning was pretty scary with narrow ledges and my husband was worried as he has a fear of heights. It was not too bad and we made it through quickly. There is... More

You start by walking along the edge of cliff with spactacular views, then off on a long hike and the views keep getting better. We went with a Ranger guide which is free and leaves at 1 PM from the Logan Pass Visitors Center.

This is your dream hike in a lifetime. Beauty, wildlife, spending time in creation, while pushing yourself to finish something amazing. The challenge up to Grinnell Glacier was well worth it, but plan 2 hours or more to make it up and down that optional piece of this hike if you are moderately fit and want to enjoy that incredible...

My wife and I hiked this trail last week from Logan's Pass to the Grinnell a Glacier overlook and back to Logan's Pass. A long hard day and it was getting dark near the end but well worth it. The hike up to The Grinnell Glacier overlook was tough but it was the crown jewel of the day. For strong... More

I was unsure about taking Highline when my dad and I were planning the trip due to its length, but he had read so many good things about it that I finally acquiesced and we decided to hike the trail on our first full day in the park. I am so thankful we did, as it provided the best views... More

This hike was the best hike we have every done. The hike was along an Indian trail that hugged the mountains. The mini waterfalls all along the trail were so beautiful! They glistened in the sun and looked like millions of sparkling diamonds. The first half of the hike was about 8 miles to the Glacier Chalet. The only part... More

So worth it!!! took the free park shuttle (stops running Sept 9) to Logan Pass and then hiked the highline trail. Has to be the most amazing hike with unbelieveable views of the park. If you enjoy hiking this is a hike you have to do

We recently hiked the highline trail from Logan Pass to the Loop. There was fog covering the trail and it was also marked for bear activity. Luckily we did not come across any wildlife. We did see a bear with cubs crossing the road near the Loop. The initial part of the hike is on a small ledge, but it... More

We took the 1:15 ranger guided hike to haystack. Beautiful views. The ledge at the beginning is a little scary but having the hose there helped. The ranger was excellent (Ariel). She even took the time to go back with us rather than take off. Lot of fun.
