Logan Pass to the chalet, then over Swiftcurrent Pass and down to Swiftcurrent Motor Inn

I have hiked in 40 of the 59 US National Parks and I returned to Glacier just to have the opportunity to do this 15.2 mile point to point hike. Previously, in 2011, I only hiked... read more

I have hiked in 40 of the 59 US National Parks and I returned to Glacier just to have the opportunity to do this 15.2 mile point to point hike. Previously, in 2011, I only hiked the Highline from Logan Pass as a 6.8 mile out and back. I totally agree with mhulkman's review that if you only do 1... More

Ive been to over 30 national parks and this is one of the best day hikes Ive ever done! Its also a very easy hike as its almost completely flat with the last 4 miles of the loop trail being all down hill. Total distance is 11.6 miles from Logan Pass visitor center down to "the loop" parking lot. There... More

It's long and difficult at times (at least was for me), but so worthwhile. The trail meanders along the mountainsides, running somewhat parallel to the Going-to-the-Sun Road, before heading back into the mountains to the Granite Park Chalet/campground. It is 7.6 miles with only a 600-foot incline near the middle (most of it in one spot - this was the... More

This trail has a little bit of everything. The views are spectacular and the path is not overly crowded. I'm not a big time hiker and I loved this hike. We encountered a half dozen mountain goats at a fe spots along the first couple miles. It was intimidating at first and I wasn't sure how'd they respond. Because the... More

We parked at Logan Pass and hiked to Granite Park Chalet and the Loop, catching a shuttle back to our car. The sights along the whole trail are spectacular. Haystack Butte is a great place to have lunch, enjoy the scenery and rest up for the remaining hike to Granite Park Chalet. There are a few areas where those with... More

Go for the flowers on Garden Wall (and later). Go for the wildlife (we saw Bighorn from 30 feet). Go for the views that never stop, but keep changing, Go for the challenging 12 mile hike. Just go.

Everything about Glacier Park was awe-inspiring, but this trail was my favorite part of the whole thing! It's got some narrow parts, not too scary for regular people and not too hard a climb, but if you are really afraid of heights you might want to think twice. I recommend trying it out, and if you get overwhelmed, just turn... More

The views on this hike are amazing. But the trail is narrow with huge drop offs. We saw people with children on this trail but I would t recommend that.

My husband and I are in our late 50's, in relatively good shape, but are not seasoned hikers by any stretch. We chose the Highline Trail as our final hike in Glacier and I'm so thankful we did. We started at Logan Pass and hiked out about 3 miles before turning around and heading back. While the trail is mostly... More
