Despite the fact that we had only a few hours to spend in the Glacier National Park, I madly fell in love with. In my mind, I often go back to the park. The whole trip to Logan Pass was just breathtaking. Going-to-the-sun road is probably one of the most scenic roads I’ve ever driven on. I would suggest taking a full day to travel along this road. The scenery will amaze you for sure.
We decided to drive to Logan Pass – the highest point of the Going-to-the-sun road (elevation 6,646 ft (2,026 m) and explore two the most popular trails of the park. One of them is the Hidden Lake trail.
It’s an easy uphill trail approximately 5,4 miles (round trip length) that takes you to the lake. Note: even if you’re going to hike there in the summer, be ready to see some snow at high attitudes, so come prepared! Definitely wear some sturdy waterproof shoes!
I saw some people hiking in flip-flops, which wasn’t smart.
We only hiked to the lake overlook (only 1,5 miles) fun and easy walk to the spectacular panoramic views of the Hidden lake and the mountains around.
I was happy to see so much snow in the middle of summer, probably because I’m Russian.
Another remarkable trail that I definitely want to explore more next time is the Highline trail that starts at Logan Pass and follows along the Continental Divide.
Round trip is approximately 15 miles. It is definitely not for people with extreme fear of heights because the trail is hanging off the side of a mountain.
Even though we hiked only a few miles, it was enough to see that this trail has outstanding views.
In summary, Glacier National Park has, hands down, the best trails I’ve ever been on. Miles of glory that you will want to walk again and again.
