Set off early to grab a parking place at Logan Pass which can get very busy. Walk was outstanding, even at the start along the Garden Wall which turned out to be not as bad as we imagined as wife does not like heights and...More

This hike is a must-do at glacier. You start at Logan Pass and head north along the continental divide. You can go a mile or all the way to the chalet, its up to you. Regardless, the views are stunning the whole way.

Apart from the awful parking experience known as Logan Pass, this trail has no downsides. You are rewarded with amazing vistas almost from the start and they don't let up. I walked to the haystack and back as my day trip and did it in...More
