So so beautiful!! Make sure to get there super early or late afternoon, if not finding parking is nearly impossible.

HikingClosedGreat!

This a amazing hike to an ever shrinking natural wonder. The trail has some difficult spots but the beauty of the hike more than makes up for the tough bits. I’d like to thank the forest service for putting peoples well being first by closing the eastern side of the park during this global pandemic. Though it is an inconvenience. Glacier is a very heavily populated park during the summer with crowded visitor centers, campgrounds , and trails. Anyone who thinks this virus is inconsequential should consider the over hundred thousand dead American citizens and their families. Then they should choose there words more intelligently. A flat out denial of scientific fact is not what sent men to the moon and anyone who engages in this denial should be ashamed of themselves. Land management is not the same as servicing visitors. This is a wonderful trail enjoy it when it is open and safe to use.

HikingBugsGreat!

Awesome trail - better than Highline. Hiked a little over 5 miles in to Siyeh Pass. The first 3.5 to the creek are pretty easy, and then it gets a little tougher but still manageable. Really pretty at the pass but also really pretty if you start climbing to the pass and turn back to look at where you came from. Tons of wildflowers the whole time, and a good number of people too. The first section along the creek is really pretty too.

Beautiful hike along the creek with amazing views. Went through some dense vegetation at one point.

Started at the Loop Trailhead and hiked to the Grinnell Glacier Lookout. Beautiful Trail! Total out and back was 11.6 miles. Like everyone says, the bugs were bad around miles 3-4 but as long as we kept moving we were ok. Gorgeous views at the top! It took us about 6 hrs.

Great hike! Beautiful wildflowers and a short hike across a bit of snow. It was a bit windy today but not unbearable. Highline, Grinnell, and several other trails were closed today due to bear activity so I did this one as plan D but i'm not disappointed. It crosses a beautiful creek several times (Siyeh, I think) and the wildflowers were just spectacular.

Easy trail. Given how crowded the rest of the park is, this one only had one other car when we arrived at 7am. We started the trail at north folk road. got a couple bug bites. A good chill hike overall for our rest day. Some nice views near the lake.

HikingBugsGreat!No shade

Absolutely stunning views. There is a lot of walking on a cliff essentially so the height might scare some folks. We took about 5.5 hours to the Haystack Butte and back from Logan Pass. Keep in mind this was with extensive breaks (and we accidentally walked a bit farther too) so many folks might do it faster. We saw mountain goats and marmots. FYI- parking was less than 1/8 filled at 6:30am on Thur when we arrived. BRING BUG SPRAY.

Went on Aug 5 in the afternoon maybe around 2pm. Got lucky with parking since someone was pulling out. Extremely hot, but unique beautiful hike. Only made it to the first fall because we are so tired from another morning hike. Saw many people jumping into the falls to cool off.

We went Aug 5 and got there 7am, where there was maybe more than 1/4 parking left. The trail of the cedars was easy and beautiful. The remaining trail to avalanche lake was also quite lovely, although the real gem is the views at the lake. Only downside: Trail was very crowded and most people did not wear masks.

We just went out about 2 miles and then back, it was very windy and I was glad to have a coat in some places, but the views were absolutely beautiful. Parking at Logan Pass took 10-15 minutes to find a spot around noon on a Friday.

HikingGreat!

This was an easy-to-follow trail that was beautiful the whole way! Near the end there is a pit toilet, which is gross with no toilet paper, but much better than nothing! The final destination is beautiful - I definitely recommend hiking all the way to the far side of the lake, but make sure to bring water shoes! My only complaint was the high popularity of the trail - we were passing people the whole way, and at one point were even forced to slow down due to the amount of people. Overall, this isn’t a trail for those who like to rough it off the beaten path, but if you want to spend time in nature with a large payoff at the end, then this is the hike for you!

WalkingGreat!

We loved the trail!!! We did it in about 6 hours and we started at 7am. I would definitely get to Logan Pass by at least that time! Gorgeous waterfalls, wildflowers, and wildlife. We had the best weather for it! If you go down to the loop, make sure if you want a ride back up to the Pass, to bring a sign!!! We got a ride within about 10 minutes!

Trail isn't closed. This is a nice easy trail but I would skip it if you have less time in the park. 90% in the sun so bring a hat and wear sunblock. Limited parking. 5.5 miles down a gravel road. The views were just ok.

Went on August 7 and the trail is closed because of bears - just FYI!

Great hike. Easier than most for 14 miles. One might may ”it wasn’t much, but it was honest”. I can’t put much stock into the first part, but it sure as hell was honest.

HikingGreat!

Did this as a long day hike from Gunsight Pass Trailhead (signed on the trail as Jackson Glacier Overlook, it seems) and exiting at Lake McDonald Lodge... Amazing views of Gunsight Lake and Lake Ellen Wilson! Also lots of huckleberries and thimbleberries ripe right now below Gunsight Lake, and saw 4 mountain goats. Tried to keep distance for safety, but they don’t seem to have any concern about humans at all - would walk right toward us on trail, even within a few feet if we couldn’t get off trail far enough! Not too many people between Gunsight Lake and Sperry Chalets... which is really the part with the best views!

HikingGreat!

The hike is steep and will test your endurance, but like others have said, please don't let that stop you. The lookout and its residing mountain goat appeared sooner than expected. Worth the sore knees and calves. My goal was to summit Mt. Brown. I came close but had to give a nod of respect to Brown and its jagged, rocky, narrow, and steep spine. I went further than I had expected but stopped short. Great views from this rocky section! Be careful up there, but enjoy!

Gorgeous hike through the cedars. I recommend going to the shore on the far end where there are fewer people.

Easy walk on a boardwalk through trees. Groomed trail. You pass water several times. Family friendly.

Gorgeous hike! We added some mileage by also doing baring falls. All three falls were beautiful, but Virginia Falls was my favorite! I would recommend hats and sunscreen as a large portion of the trail is in full sun after the 2015 fires. The extra sun made for lots of wildflowers though!

My son and I started this trail at 6:40am on 8/4/20. It was a beautiful peaceful trail the whole way. My son isn’t an avid hiker so we did take frequent breaks on the way up. The beginning of the trail starts off fairly flat then you immediately get into the incline. A consistent incline until you turn the bend around the mountain then it is flat for a bit. Then there is a fairly steep incline to get to the tower. Once we got to the tower the views were just incredible. The lookout wasn’t there but we had the place to ourselves for a bit and just enjoyed the breathtaking views. On the way down we actually met Elizabeth (the lookout) and spoke with her for about 10 minutes. She was so pleasant and very knowledgeable. Overall, a wonderful hike and I would definitely do this one again. The huckleberries on the trail were pretty yummy too!
