One of my favorites, from Going to the Sun past Chalet up and over Swiftcurrent pass and than down to Many Glacier to meet back up with friends....saw Grizzly and kept my distance but was an absolutely invigorating hike that I would do again in a heart beat!!!!

But make sure you pack enough provisions and appropriate clothing. But it was an incredible hike. Got to see almost every animal promised for that area.

We did the whole Loop trail which is 11.6 miles long. We parked our car at Logan pass car park and then took the shuttle bus back from the Loop (the finish line). It took us about 5 hours to complete the hike, but we are pretty fast hikers. The scary part at the beginning is not so scary at... More

This was my second time to GNP, but I hadn't been since I was a kid. My husband and brother were there with me for this hike - we only had a couple days and the reviews led us here. We were not disappointed! First I will say that we visited the park during the second week of September (after... More

We hiked the Highline to Loop trails in July 2014. We parked at The Loop, waited for a shuttle up to the top, started at Logan Pass, and ended up back at the Loop. The Highline to Loop is 11.6 miles round trip, with 830 ft elevation gain and 3,026 ft elevation loss (not including trail to Grinnell Glacier Overlook).... More

I read a lot about this trail before setting out on the hike with my husband and three kids (ages 12, 14 and 16). Many reviewers mentioned the treacherous first quarter mile of the hike where cables are required. We hiked this in mid September and the cables were not present. However, they were not necessary. The trail is narrow... More

Just about every park visitor stops at Logan Pass and enjoys the iconic hike across the Highline Trail. Most folks hike to the Granite Chalet and then go down the loop trail eventually ending up at the Going to the Sun Road below. If your game for a bit more "fun", the real way to do this hike is instead... More

Great trail- however they had taken the cable down when we were there late Sept and we felt a little uneasy on some parts of the trail with nothing to hold on to! Especially when meeting mountain goats!

If you hike, don't miss this!. Even if you can do just a portion of it. Its just such an uplifting experience, & not super-strenuous. Every turn affords yet another spectacular view.

Most of the people in our hiking group are in our 50's and 60's. We are active hiking, snowshowing, etc. year round. We found the Highline somewhat challenging. For some, it was the narrow trail along drop-offs and for others it was the amount of downhill (a lot)and for others it was the 12 miles distance. Highline is not terribly... More
