This is a MUST. Seriously a must do. So it is true, you must get up there early to get a parking spot at Logan Pass - so just do it - get there by 8 or 9 if you can - and I recommend this hike in the morning before it gets more crowded. the entire hike is just... More

I cannot believe I almost did not do this trail. I was at the end of my last day of hiking and I was already a little tuckered out from a week of up and down trails. First, I did this hike on September 19, 2013 around 2:00 pm. It had snowed the night before and it was majestic outside!... More

We could not go to the Lake itself (trail was closed for bear activity) but going just to the Hidden Lake Overlook was really a good way to see the lake, a couple of snowfields to cross even in July, and see wildlife. We saw mountain goats and marmots. Beautiful scenery that Glacier NP is famous for. Note: it is... More

I have done the hike to the overlook twice. Both times there were mountain goats and snow. Go as early as possible to avoid the crowds.

You may think that it's just a quick skip and a hop up a few steps to the vista, but you'd be wrong. I hiked many difficult trails in Glacier and just because its a boardwalk with steps does not make it easy. I found that the steps, going up and down, make it much harder on your knees. Young...

There is a reason why Backpacker magazine ranked this hike as one of the best in MT. The trail head is at Logan pass and it is worth it to hike all the way down to the lake. It was so beautiful and pristine. Our children loved seeing the marmots and mountain goats on the trail too.

Good bang for the buck in terms of great vista for a non strenuous hike. Also go across the road from the visitor center at Logan Pass and do at least part of the Highline Trail. Absolutely phenomenal but not for the feint of heart.

beautiful hike with boardwalk stairs for the first part of the hike. Hold out for the Lake as it is gorgeous and mountain goats are all around you. We saw moms and kids on the trails, just grazing leisurely.

Very beautiful experience! Did the full hike past the viewpoint. Was about 30deg that day, but we were well hydrated. Saw a few children along the hike as well, but it looked slightly challenging for the ones without good footwear. Highly recommend it!
