    Eileen Hittle reviewed Pyramid and Ball Lakes Trail

    3 months ago

    Loved this hike. The first 1.25 miles in to Pyramid Lake is really easy and the lake is gorgeous. Then you can hike up above it to Ball Lakes, and the view of Pyramid Lake on that trail is stunning. This part of the trail is steeper and pretty rocky. Ball Lakes look similar to Pyramid. I will definitely be back.

    My husband and I have both hiked our fair share of mountain lakes, and we both agree this is the prettiest we've seen. I really want to come back and camp overnight here.

    I was surprised that the hike descends for the first part before going uphill again. The description sounds like it's not very steep, but the elevation gain must account for height gained after it goes downhill again. The hike itself was gorgeous, great views and pretty flowers. And the lake itself was breathtaking. We'll be back.

    An easy walk. I recommend going in spring when the falls are really raging!

    Very steep trail, but well worth it. Will do again.

    Eileen Hittle reviewed Bottleneck Lake and Snow Lake

    about 1 year ago

    Hiked to Bottleneck Lake on Sunday, 8/20/17. It was a wonderful hike! About 1-1.5miles in you come across a fork in the road reading 1.75 miles to Bottleneck Lake or 3 miles to Snow Lake. Due to time constraints we opted to just do Bottleneck for the day. The hike wasn't too steep, and it was fairly well maintained. The lake was gorgeous and there were a couple campsites near it; I hope to camp overnight here one year. I also want to return and do Snow Lake! The huckleberries were abundant too; I filled up an empty water bottle easily and made lemon huckleberry bread that night! If you do go up there searching for huckleberries, please respect the bushes and only pick the berries, leaving the bushes alone, so that they continue to grow back each year:)

    Eileen Hittle reviewed Piegan Pass Trail

    about 1 year ago

    We stumbled upon this trail by accident. We were driving up the Going To The Sun Road when we came across Lunch Creek. We saw some people hanging out at the creek, so we thought we'd stop and eat lunch there (we didn't even realize that it was called Lunch Creek until after we'd eaten lunch lol!) There was a little path on the side so we started to ascend. Then, we saw a majestic waterfall in the distance. It was a steep climb, but we wanted to see the waterfall! We made it up there and dunked our heads in. It was amazing! Would not recommend for children. Our dogs did great. We turned around at the waterfall, but I would love to climb up the entirety of Piegan Pass one day. Based on the pictures I don't think this is the exact same trail as Piegan Pass, but when I looked up Lunch Creek I found out that this trail is one that climbers use to get to a spot where they can climb up there.

    This was a perfect walk to take our dogs on. The creek was gorgeous. Great if you're looking for a leisurely stroll with beautiful scenery!

    Eileen Hittle reviewed Avalanche Lake via the Trail of the Cedars

    about 1 year ago

    Completed this hike on Sunday, 8/13/17. It is a short walk to Avalanche Gorge, which is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. You'll know it when you see it--a gorge of bright blue rushing glacial water. You continue up the trail two miles from the Gorge to Avalanche Lake. You follow Avalanche Creek for the first part of the trail, but it soon disappears; however, you can hear it for most of the hike up. Avalanche Lake is a gorgeous mountain lake, and the waterfalls draining into it down the mountains in the distance are quite a majestic sight to behold.

    What stops me from giving this hike 5 stars are two things: 1. This is an easy hike and so it is heavily trafficked. Trying to pass slow groups of people taking up the entire trail was fairly annoying. 2. Dogs aren't allowed on this trail, so leave your fur babies at home. I actually camped at Glacier for the weekend and was very disappointed to see that many trails at Glacier are no-dogs-allowed.

    We were looking forward to this hike, but when we reached the point where we had about 10 miles to drive to the trailhead, you need a 4 wheeler to access. Our truck could not make it. Would've been helpful if this was included in the description--hope this doesn't happen to anyone else

    Eileen Hittle reviewed Beehive Lakes

    over 1 year ago

    We did this hike on 7/09/17. Little bit of snow at the top but not bad at all. Took us about 2 hours to go up and 1.5 hours to come back down. It was hot during the day, so I wish we would've started earlier in the morning (we started at 10am). The lake is refreshing and the breeze up there is nice, though. Gorgeous lake. Will definitely do again!
