We took the shuttle from Apgar to Logan Pass and thought this would be a good first hike in the park. The hike starts near the visitor center and is an up hill climb on a boardwalk for a while. Once leaving the boardwalk, the trail is easy to follow and levels out a little bit. There were lots and... More

The first part of the hike is mostly a boardwalk trail with steps. You can turn around at the overlook or continue done the trail to the lake itself. You almost always encounter mountain goats on this hike, especially near the overlook and will sometime see bighorn sheep on the way up. Beautiful views from the overlook and also looking... More

The hike to Hidden Lake is a tremendous hike. The first part has a gentle rise and is boarded leading up to the observation platform. The second part, which in fact is longer actually goes down to the sure of the Lake. He does require fair bit of exertion on the way back as there is a climb of about... More

Being on limited time due to bad weather in the morning, this hike was our best option - and it didn't disappoint. The walk is nice - easy and pretty level. Then, all of a sudden, the view unfolds - lakes, meadows, mountains - it really is beautiful. Superb - recommended (assuming good weather).

If you have limited time, limited energy or limited hiking experience but you want to experience something of the majesty of the park, this trail is for you. Park at Logan Pass, go past the park buildings, and the trail is right there. Be aware that it goes up. All the way up. But it is a steady and slow... More

This hike is a must do in GNP. It's simply breathtaking and even though the increase in elevation can make it a bit tough, it's well worth it. The hike is classified as easy but I struggled a bit because of the elevation (we had a woman behind us on hands and knees) so if you're not acclimatised, expect to... More

We just hiked to the overlook and not all the way to the lake. The trail starts on boardwalk steps, then changes to dirt. It goes up all the way, but it's a fairly easy hike if you're in decent shape, with a great view of the lake at the end. We were lucky to spot some big horn sheep... More

We only hiked to the overview of the lake due to the weather. Fortunately clouds would open up for quick views of the lake below. Easy hike for all ages unless you are not used to high elevation activity.

Gorgeous views. Saw big horn and Mtn sheep. Lots of steps and a groomed trail. Crowd drops away with the more steps you take and it is worth every step.
