Explore the most popular cave trails in Montana with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Great place to spend a couple hours, lots of history and dog friendly. Even in March it’s a beautiful place to go. Could hear the cracking of the ice on the Yosemite while looking at the caves.

Read the history of this place. Makes it more interesting. Great place to see a wonderful waterfall! It was a easy trail and also fun. Would visit again

It’s on private property??? The no trespassing sign kept us out and we didn’t go.

My buddy and I hiked out to the Bowman Lake campground. This is an enjoyable 7 miles out w/ minimal elevation, great for getting your hiking legs under you prior to tackling some of glaciers more intense trails. It's almost all green tunnel, with a few nice views over Bowman Lake looking up at the Continental Divide. Excellent beginner trail but pales in comparison to the rest of what Glacier has to offer.

Hiked from Bowman Lake front-country campgrounds to Bowman Lake backcountry campgrounds on the first day. The trail was flat but nice along the water and took a little under three hours. The campground was just along the lake and great for relaxing.

On the second day of our trip, we hiked from Bowman Lake campground to Brown Pass -- about another three hours but the last 2/3 of a mile was difficult. That said, that part offered incredible wildfires and great views as it was more exposed. There is a water source about 1/4 mile in either direction of the Brown Pass campground.

Our third day, we hiked all the way from Brown Pass back to the front country. It was a bit of a slog but it was all downhill/flat so made for fast hiking. We did see lots of frogs on the way back.

Great way to get to the caves. Good views and a good climb.

Great for family. Bat country! Even a petrified bat if you have open eyes in the caverns. Well guided and there was enough time to explore without haste.

Fantastic falls views

Short and easy hike. Would be fun with children.

Easy trail. Fun for the kids to spend a nice afternoon outdoors. Great picnic area.

very steep and $6 for non resident but short walk and nice staff

Super easy and worth the super short walk for the awesome view!

Beautiful scenery, very rocky once you get to the top and make sure you go in the ice caves on the back side! Gorgeous! And my dog really loved getting to cool down in the ice caves before heading back, definitely bring bear spray and we had a couple run ins in this area!

Very nice, easy hike for all ages. The steepest part of the hike is the first .2 miles up to the tracks, from there on in, its flat.

Very easy short hike and the Running Eagle falls are spectacular.

The loop is worth doing once

Very easy walk, nice for a family. I'd recommend it to anyone. There's also a lot of trails that go off of it so if you want todo a tougher hike you have that option.

It's more about the history than he trail, so amazing to see what the previous generations left behind.

EASY walk to see an amazing double waterfall! Very unique and highly recommended to see if you are in the Two Med. Area of Glacier NP.

Very short trail to a magnificent waterfall. Must see

Great hike complete with two caves and high alpine plateau. Recommend later in season due to snow. If you visit the caves be sure to tread lightly as not to spoil them for others.

Yes, I did the caverns in December - when they are normally not open to the public. Each year in December, for limited dates and times, you can purchase special Candlelight Tours. What an amazing introduction to the Caverns. I've been back in summer months too. There are numerous trails in addition to doing just the cavern tour and I thoroughly enjoyed both.

Very cool place to check out. Definitely want to be in relatively good shape though, as it requires alot of stooping, bending, and climbing that could be rough for someone with knee or back problems. The caverns have a ton of beautiful limestone columns, stalagmites, stalagtites etc. The tour guides have always been friendly and informative, and are great about telling stories and answering any questions. Keep an eye out for the bats that frequent the cave.

Lewis and Clark Caverns is an excellent cave tour. Really cool formations! Quite a few stairs, and lots of bending and stooping to get through the cave
