We didn't even go all the way on the trail but saw big horns, mountain goats and a bear. The views are incredible. It does have section that is along a narrow cliff edge that may not be for everybody. We started at Logan Pass and from there it is mostly downhill except for one fairly steep uphill.

First things first- if you are wanting to access this trail from Logan's Pass and intend to drive, GET THERE EARLY! We got there around 6 45 AM, and the parking lot was probably already half way full. We did the Hidden Lake Trail after waiting for it to warm up a bit (probably my favorite hike I went on... More

This hike was incredibly beautiful and boasts some of the best views of the park! We started from Logan pass and visited in late August 2012. I will caution that my father and I were not completely prepared for the physical demands of this hike and only made it 4-5 miles in before we had to turn around. I will... More

I cannot say enough about this trail. It is one of the more amazing things I have done in my life. Some parts are more challenging, but the reward is well worth it. At one point you are walking along the face of a wall that has views that I have never seen anything like. It is truly spectacular. You... More

This was a very unique hike. I'm not crazy about heights, but my husband really wanted to do it and I am glad we did. If you don't like dropoffs, this hike may not be for you, though. We did see quite a few big horned sheep, a mountain goat, and no grizzlies, so I was thrilled about that. The... More

This is a must do hike . We hiked it Labor Day. It was chilly & foggy in the morning which made it feel ominous . We hiked from Logan pass twd. Granite park chalet / this direction is for the most part downhill except for one section with some steep switchbacks but very doable if you are in decent... More

Hit this at the perfect time of year. Trail took longer to hike than it should have because there were so many pictures to take. Use the park shuttle system to do the entire length.

The Highline Trail is one of the most spectacular, unique and adventurous hikes in Glacier National Park as it follows along the Continental Divide and offers dramatic and breathtaking views. My mother and I hiked a portion of the Highline Trail in early September. It was very cloudy, windy, raining and freezing cold during my visit and the weather was... More

We hiked on the first nice day after Logan Pass was closed, so hiker volume may have been higher than normal. There's plenty of beauty to go around, though, both up close and distant vistas. (I found myself focusing on one and missing the other at times; I'd hike here again to see all that I missed.) We saw some... More

We were hesitant about doing this hike as we heard it was more advanced and how long it would take. The total hike was about 13 miles and took us about 6 hours at a average pace. We are so glad we did this hike. There is not a lot of elevation so it is walking on a lot of... More
