Big Creek Hike as the local sign postage has - Swan River Trail is flat, long, and easy to navigate. Today there was about 16" of powder/packed powder on the trail so normally this trail would be a walk. Nice and quite, this path allows for views of the river and quite self-reflection. Bring the pup if you got one!

So many trails, mind blowing sights, definitely try to spend a weekend or long weekend camping to make the most of it.

Very scenic and nice!!

Take the yellow bus tour & enjoy the views without having to concentrate on driving! You get several stops along the way & the driver had a lot of facts (& stories) to tell us.

Area is nice, but I can't consider this a hike. A brisk walk at best.

Two year ago my friends and I rode motorcycles up through Yellowstone then up over the Beartooth Highway. I had a black bear run against the road in front of me. Pretty exciting time. I look forward to the end of August when I'll be doing it again, but in a car this time. Sharing this beautiful scenery with my wife.

If you have a chance to bike it, do it. It's strenuous but gives you the best views and is exhilarating coming down.

Plan your entire day around it.

Nice easy flat hike, great for an afternoon stroll, take some of the side trails for a view of the river and lake. We took the trail all the way to the paved road. We also saw deer.

Beautiful scenery. Lots of traffic. Super crowded parking lot at Logan Pass.

I walked seven miles (14 mi RT) of a closed-to-vehicles GTTSR in late April (shoulder-season) after discovering the only hiking trail open near the west entrance was socked in with clouds. I parked at McDonald Lodge (worth snooping around, even if off-season -- I felt like I was in the Shining!) and started at the road gates there. This walk was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I essentially had Glacier NP all to myself, outside of two hikers I saw in the first five minutes, two cyclists (awesome idea when the road is closed to vehicles and temps are mild!), and a handful of Rangers patrolling the road in their trucks. SO peaceful; just a brilliant day. I know I didn't get to experience the true Glacier (and I will return during summertime one year to do that), but I feel incredibly lucky to have seen the park like this. I recommend a day visit during late-spring if you're anywhere near Glacier for this unique experience.

This is good for seeing a variety of birds. My family and I saw snow geese, a prairie falcon, and plenty of loons.

Drive this road at different times of day, drive from both directions, and stop often to take pictures! This is one of the best drives in the country!

Amazing place! One of the prettiest places I've been. Lots of nice hiking trails as well. Saw lots of animals and snow! Will definitely go back someday.

Quite possibly the most beautiful drive in America. Breathtaking views, lots of wildlife. There are multiple camp sites and trails along the way. Most of the drive is in bear country, so make sure you come prepared if you decide to go off on foot.

very easy with kids. nice leisurely walk along the river. saw deer and people rafting

Stunning views! We were even lucky enough to see a mamma bear with her cub by St Mary's lake.

Tons of wildlife. Nice walk, little bit swampy like during spring/summer though (bring the bug spray!)

This is a dramatic and breathtaking route but don't carry on in to Yellowstone. Instead take the beautiful Chief Joseph highway to Cody to complete a perfect day's driving

Breathtaking experience. The magnificent views and fresh mountain air are unforgettable. Frequent scenic lookout stops available, where you can take great panoramic pictures and read interesting information. The road is narrow, and there are many bikers, so caution is advised while driving, because it is easy to get mesmerized by the views.

Drove opening day on Memorial day Weekend. Did skiing in top

Nice trail in the spring! Gorgeous views of Billings and a nice sunset watching spot. You gain elevation the first 3/4 mile, but not a rough hike at all.

The views come early and often and are worth every step. the concrete is hard on the knees, but the lack of vehicles is nice.

The river is beautiful and you can't go wrong with a hike in this area. Easy enough for my 4 year old to do it all himself.

Incredible drive. Go early in the morning before the traffic becomes heavy.

We drove the entire stretch almost every day of a two week stay, and were amazed by something every time. The colors of the aspen in fall were spectacular. And the amount and diversity of the wildlife was phenomenal - Grizzly, black bear, bighorns, mountain goats, mule deer, elk, and even moose...many visible from the vehicle!

Traffic noise once you get past the dam is the reason for only given two stars
