This was our favorite hike during our across-Canada and back across-the-United States trip. The initial part is a little interesting, as it is beneath a towering cliff...and at the edge of the trail it drops away...straight down! There's a handy cable mounted to cliff and it's a nice morale-booster. Don't get scared off! The cable ends but you really don't... More

It is difficult to surpass the Highline Trail for stunning vistas. Logan Pass is one of my favourite places on the planet. Just be forewarned, most guides you will find online tend to concentrate on the more scenic and popular stretch between Logan Pass and Haystack Butte, then skip to Granite Park Chalet at the end of the trail. This... More

We started early in the morning by parking at The Loop and catching the bus to Logan Pass. This is highly recommended, since the shuttles stop running in the evening, if you are hiking to The Loop then you'll need to catch a ride back to Logan Pass if you miss the last shuttle. Great decision on our part, because... More

Fairly easy hike if you start from logans pass and hike down to the switch back. Recommend parking at Avalanche Creek and taking the shuttle up to Logans Pass, make sure you complete the 11 mile hike as the last shuttle I believe picks up around 6pm to take you back to Avalanche. The switchback is always hard to find... More

Just freaking amazing! I've done the 4 day Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu and this is every bit as amazing as that one! It took me about 7 hours nonstop hiking, not all that strenuous (not like the Inca Trail) but there are sections not for people afraid of heights where the path is narrow along the cliff (there...

This trail starts at the top of the Going-to-the-Sun Road just before you head back down the road, where you can park and leave your car. The trail is fairly flat at the start but start rises up and down for about 7 1/2 miles to Granite Park Chalet. You walk along the left-side of the Continental Divide starting at... More

This is one of the most popular trails in the park, although the trail doesn't usually open until early July because there are quite a few sections of the trail that are fairly narrow with a steep dropoff, so attempting the hike with snow on the trail could be treacherous. If you start at Logan Pass, the first 7 or... More

Great hike. Beautiful scenery, can be quite hot during afternoon sun. Carry plenty of water with and start out early in the day. Lovely!

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.
