All reviews haystack butte granite park chalet garden wall grinnell glacier overlook logan pass afraid of heights mountain goats parking lot down hill sun road four miles big horn sheep continental divide amazing hike parked our car turn around visitor center
The Highline Trail is as it says, high but this allowed us to have magnificent views over the valley. We parked at Logan’s Pass just before 7.30 am and the trail seemed fairly quiet.
This hike does begin with a rocky path and rope along...More
Best trail in park for average hiker. It starts at Logan Pass and stays pretty level at least to Granite Chalet. A great detour is hiking out onto Haystack Butte; views of Lake McDonald Valley are brilliant. And you can walk as far as you...More
Exellent day hike with continuous views. The early vertiginous segment that is narrow and simply a shelf over the valley below is potentially unsettling. Passed mother and college age daugher with the mom crumpled to ground and sobbing about the height. The cables had been...More
We hiked in Glacier for 7 days enjoying a wide variety day hikes sometimes hiking several shorter trails a day. Although we enjoyed each and every hike, the portion of the Highland Trail that we hiked was by far our favorite. We are drawn to...More
What fun (after I got over being scared). The Ranger at the Logan Pass Visitor Center said something like, "And I don't hold onto the cable much any more." Say what? We didn't know much about the Highline Trail other than it's a really neat...More
We hiked the highline trail to Haystack pass. It was a 11km round trip with 310 meter elevation change. After a few hundred meters walk, we were exposed to the big west glacier valley. It was magnificent with endless mountains and blue sky. Then the...More
I will focus my review on doing this hike with children. We loved this hike, all four of us. It was filled with spectacular views, only somewhat physically challenging, and exhilarating because of the heights the carved out trail travels. What a fabulous experience. We...More
You really do not have to walk for long untill you reach this amazing mountainwall where the trail is basically carved out of the mointain. Simply faschinating. The conditions where harsch. windy and snowing from times to times that limited visibility. astonishing experience even then....More

Check your messages. Basically the Chalets and Grinnell Glacier are in completely different areas of the park. You would need to pre-book the chalet for you chosen dates next Fall.... but it is not necessary to stay there... More
Check your messages. Basically the Chalets and Grinnell Glacier are in completely different areas of the park. You would need to pre-book the chalet for you chosen dates next Fall.... but it is not necessary to stay there and also hike the Highline. A better hike is actually the in-and-out of the Highline to Haystack and back to Logan Pass.
If you really want to stay at the chalet, then go to the Glacier Park website and see what you need to do and when you can actually make those reservations.
The 4 miles from the Loop at the bottom of the trail to the Loop parking lot is steep, goes through a burn area and is boring.
The Grinnell Glacier hike must be considered a full day hike. It takes 8.5 hours using the 2 lake boat tour or shuttle and ranger led hike. Hiking independently and without the ranger will most likely take just as long or longer. The ranger also carries the bear spray which is absolutely necessary in September.

Trail of the Cedars to Avalanche Lake is a little less than 6 miles total. The Highline Trail was my fave just bc of the views, I would turn around at Haystack though, but I’m not sure what the mileage would be on that... More
Trail of the Cedars to Avalanche Lake is a little less than 6 miles total. The Highline Trail was my fave just bc of the views, I would turn around at Haystack though, but I’m not sure what the mileage would be on that. You could do that trail and then around anywhere though to get the mileage you wanted.
We wish we would have parked at the loop, took the shuttle to Logan’s pass, and then our car would be waiting for us at the loop when we finished the hike. I don’t have any advice about the guided hike since the shuttles... More
We wish we would have parked at the loop, took the shuttle to Logan’s pass, and then our car would be waiting for us at the loop when we finished the hike. I don’t have any advice about the guided hike since the shuttles don’t accommodate your plan. We had a rental car and we found that to be the most efficient way to get around.
