    Eileen Hittle reviewed Bottleneck Lake and Snow Lake

    10 months 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

    10 months 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

    10 months 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

    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!

    Eileen Hittle reviewed Blossom Lakes Trail

    12 months ago

    We hiked this on 6/23/17. This is absolutely one of my favorite hikes ever. The lakes are BEAUTIFUL (especially Upper Blossom but Lower Blossom is gorgeous too!) The hike to Lower Blossom goes up and down but is steep in some spots. You'll come across two spots in the trail that split with no sign; they both merge in the same place so it doesn't matter which fork you take. You'll hit a creek shortly before you hit Lower Blossom and you'll follow that until you see the lake. It'll take your breath away! To reach Upper Blossom, you have to cross the creek, which isn't hard to do if you're careful. It's not a far hike to Upper Blossom after that. You'll hit a sign that points towards Blossom or Pear Lake. We tried to do Pear Lake as well, but the trail disappeared in the snow and we didn't want to get lost, so we turned back. Blossom Lakes are well worth the hike on their own though! I'm gonna come back later in the season to see Pear Lake, and we want you backpack in to camp as well! There are a few sites at both Blossom Lakes:) I can't wait to do this hike again! It's right by Revett Lake too:)

    This is an easy hike. We went on 6/24/17. It was a hot Saturday and very crowded. The trail has sweeping forest views on the way up, and the lake itself is gorgeous. We even swam in it for a second!

    Eileen Hittle reviewed South Chilco Mountain

    about 1 year ago

    If you follow the entire trail, the total distance is 14 miles. We hiked it on 6/21/17 for a total distance of 11 miles there and back (we wandered around the summits a bit too). We made it to North Chilco Peak, which is about two miles in, through South Chilco Peak, about 5 miles in, before turning around. The views from North Chilco are better, in my opinion, but there's nothing quite like bagging two summits in one hike! Especially with sister peaks:) If you want a shorter hike, it is well worth it to hike the 2 miles up to North Chilco, the view is incredible there. We ran into a surprising amount of people on this hike, about 5 or 6 groups. The flowers are beautiful right now, especially the bear grass, but there is more bear grass on the North Chilco side vs the South Chilco side. The first two miles are definitely the steepest, but if you power through it, the views are well worth it. Note: do not confuse the first lookout point with North Chilco Peak (I did that the first couple times I hiked this and I'm so irritated at myself!) The first lookout point is beautiful, but keep going a little ways and you'll see a sign that says North Chilco is 1/4 mile away. Follow the sign up and you will be rewarded with an incredible 360 view. Happy hiking!
