Hiked this gradual incline trail (1,100 ft) to Haystack Butte. Gorgeous views in every direction! The trail begins near some narrow cliff ledges (with bars to hold on to), then opening out to flowering meadows, scrubby bushes and pine trees. We even saw a herd...More

We only hiked about 8 miles total of this trail, and it was beautiful. Although this is the kind of trail that you want to keep going and going because you want to know what's just around the bend, even taking a relatively short out-and-back...More

We arrived at Logan's Pass by 8 a.m. to avoid parking issues. No problem parking, but definitely get there by 8:30 a.m. We loaded up on water and sandwiches (and bear spray) for the 12 mile hike and followed the signs that lead us across...More

The most frustrating thing about the hike was circling around for parking at Logan Pass. We almost gave up, but finally got lucky and found a spot. The Highline Trail is a great experience even if you do not plan to go the entire length....More

You really need good shoes on this one. There's a pretty good stretch up front, couple hundred yards, that's just along the ridge and the shale is slippery. There is a garden hose against the cliffside to hold onto for part of that and the...More

It does depend on your fittness and the stops you make along the way. It can take half a day or even more. I do advise that instead of taking the entire trail...do it as an in-and-out from Logan Pass to Haystack or... More

Going to the Sun is a unique drive over the divide. Drive into Two Medicine and see the store that FDR gave a fireside chat.
