did this trail in early Aug 2016. the. hiked the rest of the way to avalanche lake. Best decision of the whole trip.

yes, do this hike.

simply stated....gorgeous!

Favorite hike in GNP state-side!!!!! We LOVE this trail!!! Amazing views for the full hike! Clean fresh air that refreshes you all the way. Animals out and about. Rather steep but definitely worth it! It's actually probably our family's favorite trail to do in all of MT

Easy and beautiful trail that even small children can easily walk!

Very beautiful and fun little hike with a gorgeous lake. One of our family favorites!

Did this because we summited the glacier earlier than we expected. Very windy when we went by still so quiet and very few people. If you have time I’d say do it, it’s basically on the way anyways.

Really popular hike but if you have limited time I’d recommend doing this one over the others I’ve done. You will experience everything: glacier waters, amazing views, switchbacks galore, and most likely wildlife sightings.

I’ve done this one twice, one in early August and once in late August. The one I did in early August we were up on the ridge line and we saw a mother grizzly and two babies playing in the steam below. It was the coolest thing. The late August hike on the same ridge line we saw a massive bull moose munching away on greens down below. When we got up to the glacier I saw some Big Horn Sheep as well so keep your eyes open and bring binoculars!

LOVED THIS ONE!

If you hike down you basically leave 95% of the tourists behind at the observation deck. The switchbacks might seem intimidating but if you take your time coming back up it’s so worth it.

We also ended up seeing a Mountain Goat right on the switchbacks on the way back up from the lake. It was really awesome laying out on the rocks by the lake very quiet and relaxing.

Amazing views. The last couple miles of the hike was burnt Forrest so glaring sun but overall spectacular!

Loved this hike. Went all the way from Logan's Pass to Glacier - 17 miles. A variety of views and challenges. Saw 2 grizzlies at a safe distance. Also saw mountain goats, ptarmgans, and moose.

Compared to other hikes in Glacier, this one is just ok. I mean, it's beautiful, but if you have a capable group of hikers, then I'd look elsewhere for a challenge.

Late August- We went really early and walked all the way around the lake. There were some people there but it was still fairly empty. When we headed back we saw tons of people going up. We did see bear prints in the mud on the far side of the lake which was cool.

Did the Garden Wall section between Logan Pass and The Loop. If we are in Glacier again this I would do again. From the Granite Park Chalet to The Loop we were in a cold pouring down rain. I would hope for clear skys if there is a re-do. I love this hike. The views are beyond description!

Fun Easy late afternoon hike

We have hiked this trail twice and it is always an incredible experience. Very challenging, wear sunscreen, a hat and layer clothing, bring trekking poles and wear good hiking shoes, bring sunglasses. You will go from hot to cold and we also got rained/snowed on on the top. Big temperature changes from the bottom to top and weather changes fast. Pack a rain jacket and wear clothing that doesn't make you feel cold when you get wet. Definitely bring bear spray, we saw grizzlies and black bear and the rams are very aggressive. Try to stay in a group or take the guided ranger led hike up. Definitely a hike you will never forget! Pack plenty of food and water.

I took the hiker’s non-stop shuttle from Apgar Village which arrived at Logan’s Pass around 8:00 am. I hit the trail at 8:20 and made it to the Loop around 4:00 and grabbed a shuttle back down to Apgar Village. The views were spectacular. The wild flowers were absolutely beautiful.

Hike was nice, just wish the glacier would have made an appearance for us.

Beautiful hike in August

One of the first hikes we did in the NW and we were hooked after that. Hiking through old cedar, often next to a raging river, only to be rewarded with a beautiful crystal clear lake surrounded by mountains.

One of my favorite in glacier national park! I would recommend doing it from Logan’s Pass & working down. The views are amazing, being able to see the whole valley & the vast scenery of the whole park is worth the distance! Nightly recommend!

Such a fun and easy hike. Great for the whole family. Breathtaking views

Beautiful hike through the old growth cedars along the creek, ending at a glacial lake with great waterfalls and thick plant life everywhere!

a long yet if your up for the 14 mile hike and XC skiing well worth it hike! amazing views from the start to finish! We thought we would be the only people up there, but there was about 6 other people behind us. make sure to start early, it took us about 12 hours, because of the road being closed 5 miles before the trail!!!

Hiked this back in July. Amazing hike with great views as a good length of the trail is along the side of the mountain with the valley and Going to the Sun Rd below. Shuttled up to Logan Pass and then hiked back to the car that way.

There’s a short path a little over half way through that goes up to the Grinnell Glacier overlook. Would definitely recommend this but while the hike is short, the elevation gain is pretty tough at this point. If starting from Logan Pass, there’s a nice little stream/watering hole near the end of the trail that was wonderful to sit in after doing the hike.

Beautiful hike! We hiked this trail after hiking to Grinnell Glacier. This trail is easy and beautiful all at once. It passes through dense forest. Beautiful lake with a beautiful beachy area. Great views from the lake. Bring water and a snack, carry bear spray. Make noise on the trail.

Amazing trail, we hiked it a total of three times. Bring plenty of water, sandwich and snacks. Make sure to pack a light rain jacket or a wind breaker, it gets much colder up near the top than it is on the bottom. We went through all weather on the way up. From hot to cold. Wear sunblock and carry bear spray, we saw grizzly and the rams were aggressive too, even though we gave them lots of space and never approached them. Try to stick with other people. Amazing views the entire time. It is a challenging hike.

One of the coolest hikes I've ever completed. I did a short out and back day hike with my parents while visiting Glacier. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the park to at least spend a couple hours hiking the highline...Cannot wait to get back to Glacier!

Crowded but awesome trail
