it is a strenuous 9 miles round trip hike from visit center to the top, but the rewarding view and animals along the path is worth the effort.
we hiked in a rainy day with 2 kids (7 and 9 yrs old). it is not easy but we made it to the top. We saw a herd of mountain goats on the trail. Too bad we didn't see black bears as many others have seen. The close-up glacier view is fantastic. so do the glacier creeks. Unfortunately it was raining when we finally got to the top so that we couldn't see the grand view.
It took us about 7 hours round trip - 4 hours up and 3 hours down. We spent lots of time for taking pictures and breaks. so it won't be surprising if someone can make a round trip in 4 hours.
