“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

The Logan Pass Visitors Centre was a welcome sight for weary travellers. We were lucky to be able to find a parking spot as it was crowded with visitors when we arrived at 11am. There were some very interesting displays by the National Parks Service and information on hikes that could be taken nearby. We walked for a short time on the trail to Hidden Lake but turned back as the rain started. The Visitors Centre was warm and offered awesome views of the surrounding countryside. They had a gift shop & restrooms.

“Beautiful Visitor Center”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This Visitor Center is exactly what you imagine when you think of a Visitor's Center in a National Park. The building is situated within Logan's Pass and perfectly fits into the feeling of it's surroundings. The views in this area are amazing and picturesque while the rangers are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Finding a parking spot can be tough, but if you keep looking cars tend to come and go steadily. Definitely worth a stop!

“What a view!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

If you've been traveling up the Sun Road all this time you probably kept pulling over again and again to go 'wow, look at that!' or 'omg mountains, lol!' if you are a middle school kid. However, once you get to Logan's Pass, the entirity of the park opens up to you and you feel like a Greek god riding a chariot amongst the clouds or a tired family finally getting out of the SUV to stretch your legs. Either is good.

The pass has bathroom and food facilities and other stuff to help you navigate the park. We just stopped to take a long look and scurried around to get pictures as we were crushed for time. This is also where we met our goat and also where Brooke's pants finally gave up their ghost, dying with such utter completence that they were like a reenactment of Willem Defoe's death in Platoon. Both legs were coming apart at the pockets, the crotch was so wide open she could have been arrested for public indecency, and her butt was one stretch away from mooning the goat.

It is fitting in a way that these pants that Brooke had had since she was a teenager, were a good companion all this time, but finally left her at a special place like Glacier. After all, there are few places in the USA as picturesque and awe-inspiring as this valley. It's about as close to heaven on earth as you can get. Enjoy!

“Enjoy the journey and the destination”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Getting to Logan Pass from either the "East" where you follow St Marys Lake and stop for the iconic photo of Snowgoose Island while gradually making your way up while travelling over historic stone bridges and have waterfalls right beside you or from the "West" where the road itself is a challenge. Tight bends, dramatic cliff overhangs on one side , and steep drops the other as you transcend a magical vista of mountain scenery. When you arrive you enter into a world of beautiful wildflowers, small streams ,open mountain views and gain easy access to two excellent mountain hikes , the hike up to Hidden Lake where there are generally mountain goats (not on my trips) and the scenic lake surrounded by mountains or the Highline Trail,which gives a hike over the garden wall and great views down the valleys.Both fabulous walks.
If you do not do the walks you can still enjoy the ground squirrels and the facilities offered at the pass
Bring your own food and drinks.
