Glacier National Park protects, for all time, a portion of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region, in the interior wet belt of British Columbia. The steep, rugged mountains, warm, moist climate and wide variety of plant and animal life are typical of this natural region. The park protects unique stands of old-growth cedar and hemlock and critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife species such as the mountain caribou, mountain goat and grizzly bear. Rogers Pass National Historic Site is located in Glacier National Park. Rogers Pass was so designated for its importance in the construction and development of the country's first major national transportation route.

We started from parking lot around 3 pm. Beautiful start to finish. Made it back around 9 — it was a mile or so from parking lot to the trailhead. Saw grizzly tracks all around toward the end of the valley part of the trail, but no bear sighting. Perfect trail in my opinion. Bridge is fixed and easy to cross right now (July 2019) made it to summit and it was definitely worth it. Challenging enough that teenagers with us were happy, but no areas that I felt panicked about as their mother :)

Hiked on 11th July. Amazing views, especially at the pass. With stops and a break for lunch up top it took us 5.5 hrs, but we were slower than other hikers.

Beautiful hike. Love the lush forest, flowers. The climb is steep but fairly quick. So worth the effort to get to the top. A great boulder climbing place just before the steep section. Recommend the little side trip to meeting of the waters.

Awesome little hike for kids! Lots of climbing opportunities!

Lovey trail to the top of the Abbott Ridge and amazing views from the top. We also walked the length of the ridge and to the top of the Abbott mountain. The views from the mountain on the other side are amazing and well worth the scramble. It is a workout but you can avoid exposure and stay safe. There was some snow on the trail but not too much. It took us 6.5 hrs return. 16.6 km to the top of Abbott mountain and back to car park.

Fabulous hike. Worth the grind to get to the end and have lunch by the stunning waterfall.

Unreal hike, glaciers are amazing. Last part is very windy and fully exposed, making it all the more amazing.

One of our favorite hikes! Starts very easy and simple by the Glacier House (read all of the signs, great history). The start of the hike is through a beautiful and not very muddy forest. The last mile is pure incline and it ends at the river. We brought Crocs along and took off our boots and socks. Go a little up the rocks and on the side to get some surreal views of the valley, the glacier and the raging waterfall. On your way back down, stop at the “Meeting of the Waters” to relax on some Parks Canada Red Chairs! The hike is also 4 miles round trip if you park in the campground where the designated parking is. Hiked 7/2/19

Quick, easy hike. We have seen plenty of waterfalls on our trip but this one was the best so far. Big, fast and beautiful! Worth the stop.

Beautiful hike with waterfall and Sir Donald views throughout the hike. There is plenty of opportunity to hike past the "end" of the trail and rock scramble to get closer to the waterfall. Changing scenery, great path and easy enough for various hikers (a little steep near the top).

Gorgeous!!! This hike was so serene! Lush vegetation with a lot of waterfall and mountain view’s. The beginning is a gradual incline and a steeper incline at the back third. Worth it and so pleasant!

This a beautiful view! Not much of a hike, more of a walk! It’s just gorgeous and worth the quick walk over from the other trails in the area.

Nice short in and out trail. Steep inclines down at the start of the trail. No place to really sit for a lunch break. The mist off the falls makes everything wet. Bring something waterproof to sit on a log nearby and hopefully no ones there. Heavy traffic in July. Go early.

We took our 11 month old in a carrier as this trail is not stroller friendly. The decent down is easy and there are even some stairs along the way, but the hike back up is a bit of work. The mist from the falls was refreshing but expect some mud at the bottom as a result. A short hike with a beautiful view, definitely worth the stop!

Did this one yesterday 2019-07-02. Still a bit of snow at the top but nothing too hard to get around. Views were gorgeous from about the halfway point where you could see across the front side of the park. When you get to the top a full 360 view of the entire park + glacier made the journey worth it. Glacier has obviously melted rapidly over the years so to get to see this before it becomes a shard of ice is a real experience.

We did the loop trail and the ridge today (and a little bit further along the ridge). Took us 7 hours with plenty of stops. It was really beautiful. Do the loop anti-clockwise because there is some snow on the longer part of the loop and it is easier going down snow than going up. The ridge path is pretty clean and only has occasional snow patches but it is firmly packed and obvious where other people have trodden. Hiking boots are fine - you don’t need snow shoes.

Amazing as always. Beautiful views of Rogers Pass. Snow at the meadows.

We had been in the car for a while and this hike was the perfect opportunity to stretch our legs! We ended up jogging it after the steep decent. It took 7 minutes to get to the voracious falls! Stunning! Kids liked getting wet in the mist from the waterfall. We jogged back up and it took 7 minutes as well.

This was a beautiful hike with views of the valley, waterfalls, and glaciers. We turned around at about 3.5 miles where the bridge still was out, but passed the crews looking to put it back in. This is definitely the best hike of our trip so far.

Terrific hike. Gentle elevation for the first three-quarters of the trail - and then the final km is a sometimes steep, rocky climb out in the open. Great views at the top.

Was sad to have to turn back on this one as we didn’t have our hiking boots for the snow past the lake. (Runners won’t cut it with this one). Will have to come back to try again another time!

Absolutely beautiful hike with a payoff of great views! Would definitely recommend and do again in the future!

Amazing trail. Such amazing scenery and we only ran into 2 other people! We ran into a little snow about 3 miles up. The bridge was out at the 4 miles marker and there was lots of snow. This is where we stoped, but we enjoyed lunch with lovely views. Trail was easy and well maintained (except some little streams going down trail here and there). We brought our corgi... who dose hike a lot but he found it easy. Defiantly recommend this hike.

Breathtaking views. The trail is still quite snow-covered after the lake and first lookout. But if you persevere and snowplow up about a kilometer, the reward in views is worth it!
