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

Nice hike but it can be dangerous with snow on and ice on the trail Extremely slippery with very unforgiving steep drops Well worth the hike to the Granite Chalet for lunch then up to Grinell Glacier overlook

We hiked the Highline Trail from Logan Pass to Granite Chalet and then down to "The Loop" on Going to the Sun Road. We found this to be a really fun hike because of the tremendous views that you have just about the whole way. This hike was 11.6 miles. We also took the side trail to the Grinnell Glacier... More

Went on the trail while it was raining. It was dicey at times, but some amazing views. Beautiful place to hike. Would do it again.

This is possibly the BEST Trail at Logan Pass; but not if are afraid of heights !! No rails once you pass the first 5 mins and just a steep drop if you look below. But fantastic scenery if you can make it !

Loved this hike! It takes you across the face of a cliff over the highway and the views were phenomenal

We planned on taking this hike but it was closed for a week while we were there because of a carcass on the trail that the bears were eating. We walked on a short portion of it and it looked like a fun trail. Maybe next time!

My husband is 65 and I am 57 yrs old and pleased to say We finished the hike, all 11.8 miles of it. The scenery is beautiful, the hike is exciting as well. In the beginning you are holding on to a cable as the trail is high and narrow. I took my time and stopped when I needed a... More

The views on this trail are completely worth braving the somewhat frightening stretches. We saw wildlife (mountain goats, marmots, big horn sheep...) and that was simply a bonus. The views are really amazing and the trail is easy if you're ok with the narrow portions.
