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

My first major hiking - and what an awesome experience. Only went to Haystack Bluff -sun, rain, hail, snow, and wind only added to the experience. Shot at least 75 pictures of such amazing beauty.

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

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
