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...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...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...More

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...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...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...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.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We'll be doing Glacier with our one year old this summer (he'll be in a hiking carrier). We're planning on going to Logan Pass and doing the Hidden Lake trail, but I was thinking that maybe we could do a portion of Highline. Anyone does this hike with a baby? If we were to go one or two miles in and then hike back out, would we still see some of the nice views?

Sure would! I'm assuming the baby would be in a carrier/backpack type thing and that would be fine.
We will be travelling to Glacier in mid to late June. What's the likelihood of too much snow to hike the Highline from Logan's pass at that time?

99.9% it will not be open this year. We just had more snow on top last night.
We are interested in taking the highline trail from Logan's pass & connecting to swift current pass trail. However I see that the shuttle system does not go to Many Glacier. How would we be able to return to our car if we parked at Logan's pass. We camp at Many Glacier campground the first 3 nights & then stay at swift current inn & then fish creek campground 2 nights & a night at lake McDonald lodge later in the week . I assume it is a quicker drive from the west to do this trail if we start at Logan's pass . Thanks Joan
