Plan to arrive at Logan's pass before 9:30 to get a parking spot. We hiked this as far as haystack butte and turned around for a hike of about 7 miles. You had great views of the mountains and tons of waterfall crossings. Steep ledges and tons of wildflowers, plants (hence the name garden wall) we saw 3 mountain goats... More

Great views in this 11.7 mile hike. It is a little work, but I am 64 years old and not a big hiker and we did it in 5 1/2 hours. We got rained on and I still loved it.

The first 3 miles (from Logan Pass) are treacherous for people that don't like 200-400 foot drop offs only a foot or two from the path. I'm not overly afraid of heights and it was nerve-wracking to me. Some great tips can be found here: http://enjoyyourparks.com/GlacierParkHighlineTrail.html

This is THE MOST beautiful hike with one caveat: it is 11.6 miles loop and it was excruciating to finish it! After reading all the reviews, I still thought there were two options - 7.6 or 11.6 miles hike. This is 11.6 miles loop from start to finish. Only if you have reservations to stay in Granite Park Chalet (which... More

Exciting hike over narrow ledges. I felt safe, but if you are terribly afraid of heights it may not be the hike for you. We saw marmots and beautiful wildflowers and stunning views. What more could you ask for!?

I have hiked this trail many times. It used to be easier to stay at Granite Park Chalet to make an overnight ear, but it's popularity means you need to try for reservations on the day reservations open in the fall, and then with no guarantee. Early July may be too early due to snow conditions. The last time I... More

I hiked this Sunday September 15, 2013. Some would say they knew better than to hike alone but this time I should have known better than to go with a ranger led group. It had been a while since I did any kind of 7 mile hikes. First, it took 1.5 hours to find a parking space at Logan’s Pass... More

The Highline Trail was a wonderful hike although I have to admit I didn't complete the entire trail. It was our first hike after we arrived in Glacier and the entire trail was a little long for me. I did find it fun and beautiful, although anyone with a fear of heights may find it stressful. It was one of... More

Although the vistas surrounding the Highline were magnificent, the rimrock portion of the trail was simply to frightening for me to even begin it. Even though the trail is well maintained and there is a cable embedded into the cliff wall, the sheer drop was too much for be, Not for anyone who is the least bit afraid of heights.... More

We only did a short section of this trail - and I personally found it very challenging. Not physically, the trail is in good condition and reasonably flat, but mentally. The path is etched into the side of the mountain, meaning you are constantly walking with a sheer drop at the edge of the trail. It did not bother my... More
