|Description: Only one day in Glacier? Don't miss the vibrant wildflowers, precipitous peaks and pristine alpine environment of Logan Pass. Come discover why Glacier is called the Crown of the Continent on our Tuesday hike.
You'll meet at our office in West Glacier at 8:00 am. Your guide will do a quick orientation talk and check over your gear for the day and go over last minute details. Then off we go in the van to Logan Pass, driving up the spectacular Going to the Sun Road, a historic and visually stunning ascent of Glacier's high country. We will be hiking the Highline Trail (also known as the Garden Wall) to Haystack Butte and back, which makes it a 6 mile round trip excursion. The Highline is mostly moderate with the trail undulating a couple of hundred vertical feet at a time. You'll be hiking in an alpine environment with wide open views of the majestic peaks all around you. Our guides are very informative and love to share their knowledge of the Park. They'll also provide a mountain gourmet lunch which we'll get to enjoy in a memorable location. You'll end the day knowing more about Glacier National Park and its environment than you ever expected. We'll be getting back to the Glacier Guides office by around 5:30 PM sometimes a little later depending on the trip.
Minimum age: 10.
