Our top five Montana hikes for Glacier National Park’s Logan Pass
Logan Pass is one of Glacier National Park‘s most visited areas, and for good reason. It has a great visitor’s center, is in the heart of Glacier National Park, has terrific hikes, and is close to the best in Montana hotels. Here’s our top 5 picks for hikes in this area.
- Siyeh Pass: Here’s some Glacier National Park views Montana vacation hikers will really have to earn. The trip is 10.3 miles one-way, but offers views of water falls, wild flowers, and great wildlife viewing opportunities. If you can hack it, it’s worth the trip.
- Avalanche Lake: Great hike for a Montana family vacation at just 2 miles with a 500 foot elevation gain. The lake is surrounded by steep mountainsides dotted with beautiful cascading waterfalls, especially in late spring.
- Trail of Cedars: Another great Montana family hike, this one is only .2 miles, but takes you down a boardwalk through some of the largest cedar trees in Montana.
- Hidden Lake Overlook: This 1.5 mile boardwalk hike from the Logan Pass visitor center offers great opportunities for photographing Montana’s wild sheep and goats up close, and getting great views of the park.
- Granite Park Chalet: Hike to this historic Montana lodge from either The Loop Trail Head or Logan Pass. Distance varies depending on starting point. Plenty of wildlife and wildflower viewing opportunities on this hike.
Before attempting these Glacier National Park hikes, we recommend consulting a qualified Glacier National Park guide, or visiting with a park ranger to get the best information on grizzly sightings, trail closures, and weather advisories.
