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

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

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

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

What an enjoyable hike...that is until the end (more on this later). If arriving by car in high season, be sure to arrive at Logan Pass visitor's center no later than about 8:30 am. We started hiking at 8:10 am and were in the shade...More

Sure would! I'm assuming the baby would be in a carrier/backpack type thing and that would be fine.
