Hiked Logan Pass to Granite Chalet and then down Swiftcurrent Passy to Many Glacier

Do NOT TAKE CHILDREN, do not take people who are not comfortable with hiking and cliffs. It is a great classic hike. Hike to the bottom and then shuttle back to the top lot. Very nice if you are experienced with the mountains. Watch out for clouds and lightning and rain. DO NOT go if weather threatens.

So Beautiful. Hard to even describe! 12 miles. The last 4 miles were the hardest. (From Granite Lodge down) I will turn around next time and go back. Prettiest that way anyway.

Our trip leader took us on this trail. It was a treat. Another hiker said it is one of his top 10 hikes.

Favorite hike of the 60+ miles of hikes we completed on our recent trip. Most people head out and back either before or after hitting the big switchback at Haystack Butte. I believe that the cabling was installed because the trail is so easily accessible from Logan Pass visitor center that people who are not familiar with trail walking find... More

We hiked the full 12 miles from Logan Pass to Loop parking lot in the beginning of August. The first several miles are among the best scenery I've seen on any hike. The last mile to the chalet is OK. The last 4 miles from the chalet to loop are downhill literally and figuratively. There is no shade on the... More

We rode the shuttle to Logans Pass, as the parking fills up early. The first part of the hike has a cable available to hold on in parts where the path is narrow. It doesn't seem as necessary as the cable on Angel's Landing at Zions NP does. The scenery was glorious and amazing. We saw a wild goat, several... More

This is an incredible 11.8 mile hiking trail starting at Logan Pass. You will see everything from great vast moutain views, wildflowers, wild life and more. I would highly recommed this trail as a must do on your trip to glacier. There is a short 1.2mile round trip offshot that provides an overlook of Grinnell Glacier. The views from this... More

I had to do the first 1 mile after seeing the pics. I took my 9 year old. I have a minor fear of heights. I found if you held on to the hose and just looked at the trail, it was fine. There's a few parts where people come in the opposite direction and someone has to walk around... More

This trail is almost 12 miles of you complete the highland loop. About 7 and a half miles I to the trail is one of the chalets the park has. It is small but will sell water in case you need. I suggest on warm days to bring enough water but not to much because after awhile it get rather... More
