Highline Trail is a 38.1 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near West Glacier, Montana that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
The High-Line trail runs from the Logan Pass Visitors Center to The Loop Trail Head along the Garden Wall. The first 7.6 miles of the trail in easy with gradual elevation climb. After Granite Park Chalet the trail drops 2,200 feet in 4 miles to the Loop Trail Head. Expect heavy traffic and be early if you plan to park at the visitors center. The trail in very narrow in some places with steep drop offs. There are three other trails that joint the Highland at Granite Park Chalet allowing of alternative hiking options.
Absolutely gorgeous trail! Last 4 miles passed Granite Chalet aren't quite as scenic as the first 7, but still jaw dropping. I would say it may be a tougher hike for little ones due to the rough terrain and sheer cliff side.
We started our hike out mid morning. It was foggy and cold. As we continued our hike the fog lifted and it began to warm. The scenery was breathtaking. And it was worth every step to pursue this adventure.
We did the Highline Trail to The Loop - total of just over 11 miles. The views are outstanding. It is a must! Take advantage of the shuttle system and do it!
Went from Logan Pass and then down the loop and took the shuttle back up. The views were incredible. Definitely as busy trail--glad we got out early (6:45a) to avoid most the crowds which we started seeing around noon up at the granite park chalet. My favorite part was the Garden Wall Trail up to the Grinnell Overlook...with the strenuous .6 miles!!!
Hiked from Logan Pass to the Chalet then down to the loop for pick up on the shuttle. It's beautiful this time of year with many flowers along the way. It was a warm day but the sun was shining:)
We took it from Logan Pass to the Loop about 12 miles. Great trail going to the chalet, the hike down to the loop was not as interesting but was 4 miles as opposed to going back the same way. At the loop you can take the shuttle back up to logan pass.
