Beautiful easy trail. Well marked and easy to hike in and out. At the end is a lake and we saw trumpeter swans with signets while we enjoyed a picnic. Be aware you are in bear country and take all the precautions. We saw 2 piles of bear scat on the trail and sang loudly and clapped most of the way to prevent the bears from approaching. Take bear spray. Hiked with mom and kids...it was beautiful. Take bug spray too....when we stopped to take pictures, we were swarmed and sprayed down. Great hike!

Beautiful hike with a gorgeous lake at the end! Well maintained and well trafficked. Had mom and kids with me and it was perfect for all ages. Be aware that you are in bear country. Bear spray and bear safety awareness is a must.

Fun hike but it is more like a mile long. My 9 year old lost his camera on the hike but otherwise it was great with nice views of Lake McDonald.

Easy, short trail. It's a popular hike, so it has a lot of traffic. Great if you're on a time crunch and want to get a quick hike in. Plus, you drive around Hyalite, which is always beautiful!

It was a little rough getting up and there were some confusing switchbacks. Given that, it's a beautiful hike and totally worth the trek up. Be prepared, it's super windy on top!

Absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite places. It's a little more difficult at the beginning of the trail, but overall it was pretty mellow.

Not worth it

Disappointing destination.. little lake in the woods with a bunch of bugs

Love this hike my 2 year old and 5 year old boys hike with me a lot it's a long hike but a hike that they can do all on their own and the kids love to play in the little make shift fort at the top the views the whole way up are amazing too

this trail was really difficult due to it being absolutely freezing and insanely windy and rocky. That being said the entire time you are faced with amazing views and I saw a family of mountain goats, with babies, on the way down. All in all one of my favorite hikes of glacier, but I'm a sucker for a challenge and beautiful views.
