Get to Logan Pass before 9 for parking. I think we arrived at 9:30 and had no trouble, but you never can tell. It gets busy fast! It was pretty windy and cold mid July when we started. The trail is narrow and steep, 11.6 miles, but really not that bad. You will see some of the most beautiful mountain views ever. Until you get to the Haystacks, there's not a lot of big incline. To make it over the Haystacks you do have to go up pretty steep switchbacks. A lot of people turn around here. You'll still get stunning views. We went over and made it to a waterfall. There was still a lot of snow and the trail was blocked by a thin looking sheet of icy snow. We ended going over the sketchy waterfall and it was a bit scary. Many people decided not to try it, but I'd made up my mind that I wasn't going back. And right after that it started raining. We were blasted by wind and rain until we got to Granite Park Chalet. Unfortunately we didn't get to see much of the view because of the weather. We made some crazy memories though. Bring a rain jacket just in case. It saved us! Good thing there weren't any bears. We wouldn't have been able to see them anyway with the bad weather. Granite Park Chalet was a nice place to dry off a bit and rest. We had a quick lunch and luckily the weather was nice the last 4 miles. It's an easy 4 miles too. Decline all the way. I can't wait to do it again. It's beautiful, challenging, and spectacular! The deer are habituated to humans and don't sprint off. It's amazing to watch them in such a gorgeous setting. I think it took us about 7 hours, but we stopped a lot for pictures and to dry off.
