Amazing views that photos do not do justice. I saw a herd of bighorn sheep 10 feet away, plus a mountain goat. Lots of exposure to the elements on the way back so be prepared. Views from the chalet are amazing.

Awesome hike. Really easy, great views, and cool wildlife. I went just after it stopped raining and fog was covering the whole valley below. So beautiful.

One of the easiest hikes in glacier except for the distance, and for that reason probably the busiest trail in Glacier Park. Spectacular views the whole way. Took the spur up to Grinnell Glacier, up all the way, but worth it, great views. So many waterfalls along the trail. Recommend starting at Logan Pass, After the chalet it's all down hill. Had a ride waiting to pick me up at going-to-the-sun-road.

This is a very popular Glacier Park hike for serious hikers. Part of the Highline trails, owing to spectacular vistas, excellent wildlife viewing opportunities, and low level of difficulty by starting at Logan Pass. The trail follows the west face of the Continental Divide, maintaining a relatively constant elevation to Granite Park Chalet, from there the trail heads down to the Going-to-the-Sun road at "the loop". Elevation gain 830, elevation loss to the loop 3025. Many spur trail options off this trail, including the 8/10 trail up to a notch in the Garden Wall for a view of Grinnell Glacier which I recommend highly. Spent 10 days hiking @ Glacier & it could have been 30. Glacier is a serious hikers paradise, IMO.
