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

This is a must do hike . We hiked it Labor Day. It was chilly & foggy in the morning which made it feel ominous . We hiked from Logan pass twd. Granite park chalet / this direction is for the most part downhill except for one section with some steep switchbacks but very doable if you are in decent... 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

We hiked on the first nice day after Logan Pass was closed, so hiker volume may have been higher than normal. There's plenty of beauty to go around, though, both up close and distant vistas. (I found myself focusing on one and missing the other at times; I'd hike here again to see all that I missed.) We saw some... More

We were hesitant about doing this hike as we heard it was more advanced and how long it would take. The total hike was about 13 miles and took us about 6 hours at a average pace. We are so glad we did this hike. There is not a lot of elevation so it is walking on a lot of... More

Nice hike but it can be dangerous with snow on and ice on the trail Extremely slippery with very unforgiving steep drops Well worth the hike to the Granite Chalet for lunch then up to Grinell Glacier overlook

We hiked the Highline Trail from Logan Pass to Granite Chalet and then down to "The Loop" on Going to the Sun Road. We found this to be a really fun hike because of the tremendous views that you have just about the whole way. This hike was 11.6 miles. We also took the side trail to the Grinnell Glacier... More

Went on the trail while it was raining. It was dicey at times, but some amazing views. Beautiful place to hike. Would do it again.

This is possibly the BEST Trail at Logan Pass; but not if are afraid of heights !! No rails once you pass the first 5 mins and just a steep drop if you look below. But fantastic scenery if you can make it !
