An In-and-Out From Logan Summit is Better Than the Entire Trail!

We don't enjoy the lower part of the Highline Trail from the Loop. Its boring and a little difficult for what it offers. If you start from the Loop, you may give up and not hike... read more

We don't enjoy the lower part of the Highline Trail from the Loop. Its boring and a little difficult for what it offers. If you start from the Loop, you may give up and not hike the trail at all. On the other hand hiking the Highline from Logan Summit to at least Haystack and back is gorgeous in both... More

My Husband and I are big travelers and often plan our trips around hiking. We did multiple hikes on our recent visit to Glacier and the Highline was our favorite. This is a long hike (one direction) that required a little forethought as we were catching the park shuttle bus at the end to take us back to our car.... More

We didn't even go all the way on the trail but saw big horns, mountain goats and a bear. The views are incredible. It does have section that is along a narrow cliff edge that may not be for everybody. We started at Logan Pass and from there it is mostly downhill except for one fairly steep uphill.

First things first- if you are wanting to access this trail from Logan's Pass and intend to drive, GET THERE EARLY! We got there around 6 45 AM, and the parking lot was probably already half way full. We did the Hidden Lake Trail after waiting for it to warm up a bit (probably my favorite hike I went on... More

This hike was incredibly beautiful and boasts some of the best views of the park! We started from Logan pass and visited in late August 2012. I will caution that my father and I were not completely prepared for the physical demands of this hike and only made it 4-5 miles in before we had to turn around. I will... More

I cannot say enough about this trail. It is one of the more amazing things I have done in my life. Some parts are more challenging, but the reward is well worth it. At one point you are walking along the face of a wall that has views that I have never seen anything like. It is truly spectacular. You... More

This was a very unique hike. I'm not crazy about heights, but my husband really wanted to do it and I am glad we did. If you don't like dropoffs, this hike may not be for you, though. We did see quite a few big horned sheep, a mountain goat, and no grizzlies, so I was thrilled about that. The... More

Hit this at the perfect time of year. Trail took longer to hike than it should have because there were so many pictures to take. Use the park shuttle system to do the entire length.

The Highline Trail is one of the most spectacular, unique and adventurous hikes in Glacier National Park as it follows along the Continental Divide and offers dramatic and breathtaking views. My mother and I hiked a portion of the Highline Trail in early September. It was very cloudy, windy, raining and freezing cold during my visit and the weather was... More
