Did this trail the Saturday after Going-To-The-Sun road opened this year. Came here in the afternoon, found parking easily The trail was still mostly covered in snow. Many people came with their sleds and skis - apparently a yearly ritual for some locals. Hidden Lake was still frozen. The views were dramatic and stunning at the overlook and throughout the hike. I just wish there were less people.

Bit slick on the boardwalks. Beautiful walk on either side of the creek.

Beautiful hike through the woods and picturesque riverside scenery. No wildlife sightings, and nps had a portion of the loop closed for Maintenance but still well worth the trip.
Moderately easy, relatively low elevation change.

beautiful mountain and lake side views along with three different water falls. only downside is personal, in that I prefer alpine trails :)

Amazing views all around. We aren’t in great shape so it took us a little longer than others. There were a lot of people on the trail; views getting there and back were just as beautiful as the Hidden Lake. Mostly wooden planks and then there are gravel trails. Some snow on the boardwalks but dries out around noon.

Wonderful hike with lots of wildlife. We seen a lot of Mt Goats and long horn sheep. The flowers were just starting to bloom.

Easy, ADA accessible trail. Shaded with large cedar trees. We were not planning to stop, but decided to at the last second. Good for kids too.

Absolutely gorgeous views from the summit. Requires some scrambling and climbing to reach the summit, but it's totally worth the effort.

on Mount Oberlin Trail

Alert - the route posted on All Trails as of Sep 2018 is NOT the official trail, nor does it go to the top. I talked to a ranger on my way up on 9/6/18 who told me the real trail goes to the ridge between Oberlin and Clements Mtn, then follows a marked "goat trail" to the top. This is longer and much higher than what is posted. About half way up you can see another traveled route through the scree field, but it has a row of rocks across it and earlier signs tell hikers not to go off trail. The ridge route I took is a bit steep just getting to the ridge, then the goat trail gets into some tough class 3 (needing hand-holds). I gave up maybe 100 feet below the top because of a maneuver I was not comfortable with as a 69-yr old out alone. Views are exquisite, and I would rate it 5 stars except for the issues above.

Hiked 9/5/18 from shuttle stop. Apparently there's a new trail, because this is a shorter route than going from the car parking. It goes through a nice clearing with mountain views, but does not go by St Mary Lake. An easy, pleasant walk with both mountain and waterfall views. Be sure to look east (away from St Mary Falls) for nice views.

More of a stroll than a hike, there isn’t a lot to see on this trail, but it does serve a purpose.

The entire trail is boardwalk and pavement with handicap accessibility throughout. The loop winds through heavy forest, and the park has installed signs to educate walkers about trees on the trail. The entire path is covered by the forest canopy, so there is no exposure. Overall the trail is reminiscent of an eastern US nature trail.

If you have children, mobility issues, or are just tired from some other trails, this is good way to spend a half hour or so. It can help you warm up for a more strenuous hike and learn more about the trees that populate a portion of the park.

an amazing hike in all directions. easy hike if you are in shape. a glacier park must do!

Relatively easy hike if you're in average shape, and the view was amazing even with a lot of smoke. Lots of wildlife along the trail, just don't crowd them. We saw mountain goats at multiple times on the trail as well as passing bighorn sheep. Get there early or take a shuttle because parking is limited and this is a popular destination.

Truly a capstone event if visiting the park. The last waterfall is an incredible walk-up 60 foot fall. On the trail, we also saw 2 moose.

Beautiful trail! Great easy hike up to the view point. We saw big horned goats on the way up which was pretty special. The wildflowers are in perfect bloom along the trail and there are still small streams coming from the mountain top.

We went later in the day, so there were not too many crowds. Easy hike, with a gradual climb.

amazing hike and the view was breath taking

We’ve hiked this in the winter and summer. Winter was just as incredible as the summer, without the crowds.

Busy but never felt crowded, hiked over snowy parts in mid July, no shade, bring sunscreen, and give the mountain goats their space. Spectacular views everywhere!

Great for animal sightings.

This is a fun and fairly easy trail. Goes through a burn area that has now been taken over by the flowers. You still get great views of the mountains as you work your way through the woods. Keep going all the way to Virginia Falls, it is worth it! There are also several “mini-falls” between St Mary and Virginia that keep the light uphill portion entertaining. Limited parking- either take the shuttle, get there early, or be prepared to be patient for a spot.

If you don't mind horse poop, this trail is one of the easiest lake accessible trails I hiked in Glacier. It is very private, not heavily trafficked, and is shaded nearly the entire way. Beautiful pine forests and plenty of birding opportunities around the lake.

Great trail that isn’t too long or too taxing. But it’s definitely longer than listed. Be prepared for about 4 miles there and back if you want to see Virginia Falls from the furthest viewing location. Lots of deer were on the trail, very tame.

Loved this trail and it is a nice hike to the lookout. However if you hike down to the lake it is not easy. Narrow paths, 12 switchbacks and 675 feet decline in altitude made this hike 5 miles overall and challenging. Be prepared if you are hiking to hidden lake, it is not easy after the lookout.

Spectacular! Was there about a week ago. Many hikers jumping off of the bridge below St. Mary Falls. Hike it to the end for the Virginia waterfall. It’s worth it.

Very pretty. Nice and easy. Lots of people though!

Easy loop circling Swiftcurrent Lake. Great views across the lake to the surrounding mountains. I saw a black bear while hiking this trail, and many of the trails in the park's Many Glacier area have been closed recently due to bear activity. Overall, a nice way to spend an hour or so.
