dogs on leash
A very well beaten path leads you to the glacier overview. We started the hike later in the day and still made it back before the temperature dropped too much. There are a few river crossings, the farthest of them is by far the most difficult but it looks like there are better places to cross further upstream.
Beautiful views from start to finish. Enough uphill to get a sweat on but a very accessible hike regardless of fitness level. Would definitely do again! We parked at heather meadows, went up the wild goose trail to artist point, and got on the trail from there.
What a wonderful hike, the trail is so easy to follow now, very well marked. The log crossing was easy as well, and there are a few spots where you can cross to the other side without having to cross the log, and not get your feet wet. My friends and I were out there very early and had the whole trail to ourselves. The trail is very nicely maintained, there is only one small section on the other side of the river and back on the main trail where it's a short stretch of rocks. The leaves are starting to turn. It was nice to see some of the old buildings still standing. Great place for camping too. No bugs, No bees.
