The HighlineTrail in Glacier National Park is simply something special, as you hike your surrounded by peaks on all sides and it truly is something that cannot be described. Images truly can’t even do this hike justice because of the massive views on all sides.
An 11.5 hike we suggest starting early in the morning before the parking lot at Logan Pass is full (we arrived at 7) after 9 it is packed and you will struggle for parking. Once your finished take the shuttle back up to the parking lot instead of hiking back the way you came. We got on the trail before the crowds and were rewarded with picturesque views as far as the eyes could see, relative solitude, wildlife sightings galore, and cooler temperatures. This hike is nearly completely exposed so by mid day its HOT.
