Scenic Point is a 7.7 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near East Glacier Park, Montana that features a lake. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking and walking.
This is by far one of the more challenging hikes in Glacier. BRING LOTS OF WATER!!! There is none. It is easy the first mile and a half. Once you get past Apostocki Falls, bring on the climb! Make sure to take pictures next to the ghost tree about a mile up (pretty obvious). Past that point, lots of straight up the damn ridge. You will be some snow toward the top but the last 100 ft vert is all scramble Just follow the footprints to the top. IT IS WINDY AT THE TOP so hang on but worth the 360 degrees of view you get. Please knock over the cairn at the top, it WILL get in the way of pictures and it is quite large (means it was quite the climb!)
Great views. Well worth the effort.
Lots of uphill but so worth the amazing views! Bring lots of water!
Worth the work! Gorgeous views the entire way, but stunning from the top. Big Horn sheep grazing close by, marmots waiting for your leftovers, and the closest I've ever felt to Heaven.
Pretty good return for the investment
We did the 8 mile (round trip) hike and turned around once we got to the top of scenic point. We saw breath taking views the entire journey but they just kept getting better as we got closer to the top. It was a little rainy and got pretty cold at higher elevations. I would definitely recommend this trail to anyone in the East Glacier area.
Breathtaking views! Unbelievable!
