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

We started at the loop trail. We arrived at 7am...plenty of parking at that point. We wanted to take the shuttle at 7:45am to logan pass...when the shuttle arrived the driver informed us the first 3 shuttles were full...meaning we couldnt get a shuttle until after 9am. We decided to start the hike from the loop parking lot...most people start... More

If I could only recommend one hike in Glacier this would be in. I just did it with my wife and 10mo old daughter in a baby carrier. We did the loop trail and I've done the other section into East Glacier, which I would recommend much higher then the loop. It's just a pain because you have to hitch... More

The trail is about 11-12 mils from Logan Pass to Loop Park. You see most spectacular view alone the trail. But, please control your time if you want take shuttle bus from Loop Park to Logan Pass. Make sure you have a shuttle time table before on trail.

If you've only got a little bit of time at Logan Pass, it is well-worth your time to spend an hour or so hiking down the Highline Trail for a half mile or so to experience the views down the valley. Hang on to the cable handrail bolted to the wall, as the sheer drop from the 10' wide trail... More
