A backcountry experience of Glacier National Park. The view from the top of the pass is breathtaking, showing off sweeping glimpses of both the Kennedy Creek Valley and the Belly River country. Backcountry camping permits required to stay at Poia Lake campground and Elizabeth Lake campgrounds.

A friend and i did the first part of this trail starting near Many Glacier to Lake Poia last weekend. We were really hoping to do the entire thing but couldn’t for time reasons. In hind sight i think starting at chief Mountain and heading down would have been the way to go for a few day trip. Let’s just start out by saying this is an incredibly beautiful trail. That being said, the first few miles of the trail were very muddy especially since it rained on and off all weekend, but definitely not a deterrent. The mosquitoes were thick at the campground but with bug wipes we were totally fine. The real issue were the bears! Unfortunately the ranger station did not inform us that the trail had just reopened due to high bear activity. We are very aware of being loud, clapping, yelling and keeping bear spray at hand and did all of this. There was a Grizzly at the beginning of the trail just as we started but at a safe distance... then maybe a mile before the lake we came upon a black bear suddenly 5 feet of the trail that ran off thankfully... then at the lake there was a sow and 2 cubs that lingered on the other side of the lake almost the entire time. Luckily there was a group of 6 guys camping there too and they were very loud in an attempt to keep them away. Despite the situation we came out alive with no battle wounds! The trail was incredible and the flowers and views are worth the stress!

Camped at Elizabeth Lake and up over the pass. Got caught in a blizzard in late August on the pass but it was still worth it. Camped at poia lake which was stunning. Difficult few days but worth it!

We started at the Swiftcurrent Trailhead in the Many Glacier area of the park. We continued to Apukuni Falls. It’s a mile up & then back down. Beautiful falls. From there we went to Poia lake for our first night of camping. Heavily wooded area & we saw tons of wildflowers. Once we arrived at camp, we enjoyed the sunset views of the lake. The first part of the hike up to Redgap Pass from Poia is easy. Fairly flat, going through wildflowers, wooded areas, & along a creek. Once you start the switchbacks, it’s a steep hike up to the top. We took many pauses along the way. At the top, the views are unparalleled. Take time to soak it all in! From there, we headed down to camp our second night at Elizabeth Lake. Wonderful campground! We left in the morning for Ptarmigan Tunnel. Gorgeous wooded hike at first followed by dramatic Mountain views & a steep hike up to the tunnel. The hike back down is beautiful & easy. We took a quick detour to Iceberg lake...a must see on this trip! We continued down & back out at Swiftcurrent Trailhead to compete our 3 day journey.

First few days of August my brothers and I did Redgap Pass to POIA. The trail up to POIA is pretty heavily wooded, passing a shallow marshy lake. Right off the bat we came into contact with a bull elk that moved off through the bush. This section of the trail had an unreal amount of scat on the trail that wasn't bear other wild animals. When we made it to camp we realized that another camper had pack llamas, which was where all the scat came from. Stick your head right through the bushes at tent site and you have incredible views of POIA lake and the valley. Next day was from POIA over Redgap Pass and back to Helen Lake, a little over 15 miles. You will definitely earn it on the way up to Redgap. Also take note that there was only 1 legitimate fill up for water about halfway up from a small waterfall. The views of Elizabeth lake, Crowfoot Mountain, and the Ahern Glacier were incredible from atop Redgap Pass. Second night was at Helen Lake, definitely the most dramatic views from camp. Third night was at Elizabeth lake which was the nicest campground setup we saw. Ample "tree benches" and food prep area. All of the campgrounds had an outhouse. We did not see any bear on the trip but we did see another cow elk near Helen Lake, and then a large bull moose at Elizabeth campground. We exited out through the Ptarmigan tunnel.

8/4/17. We were limited on time, so we did to Poia Lake and back out. 12.8 mile round trip. Poia lake is stunning with a small waterfall 250 yards past the campsite. Bear Scat seen along trail throughout the trail. Nice food prep area, an outhouse, and four level campsites. Would love to go back and do the entire pass, but this little hike was great.
