highline trail conditions

Hi guys my husband and I will be coming July 14-22. I saw that last year high line trail didn't fully open til beginning of august, while other years it was the beginning of july . we would like to at least hike some of the trail if possible , my question is when it gives the opening dates, does that mean for the entire trail or is the trail partially open earlier than that? Thanks

The area of the Highline that would cause it to be closed is right at the start near Logan Pass; so, the Highline is almost never "partially open". It is closed completely and then open.

Grinnell Glacier and Iceberg Lake are different as they always partially open for a while before they fully open.

You can access it from the loop also, if the part at Logan Pass is closed. Makes for an out-and-back hike or you can just try for the overlook at grinnell and swiftcurrent pass/summit and the chalet.

Thanks for your advice! Hopefully it might open early! When does the NPS start to update trail conditions on their website?

You'll probably notice posted trail updates in May/June, depending on this here's snow cover and future weather.
