Pine Creek Falls

This is a great family hike. I was able to do it with a baby on my back and with my dog. there is a bit of elevation gain but nothing too bad. The trail was really crowed but I did go on 4th of July weekend. I will be doing this one again. It was a really hot day but with the shade of the trees and the mist from the water fall at the end, we did not feel it to bad. The parking can get tricky so get there early if you are going to go during peak season

Very easy hike... But bring water shoes of some sort to get to the nice hot water spot in the river because it's really hard if you go bare feet! Too crowded for me at the time I went. One restroom available at the beginning of the trail. Saw a snake in a hole, pay attention where you walk. Check.

Bowman Lake Trail

My buddies and I did the Bowman - Kintla Lake loop. A 38 mile loop that takes you up to Brown's Pass and Hole-in-the Wall. It is an amazing place to hike, and the back country campgrounds are pretty nice. I can't wait to make it back to Glacier National Park and do another back country hiking trip.

Triple Divide Trail

Incredibly beautiful but difficult hike. We had camped at Red Eagle Lake the night before, and we day-hiked the pass the next day, an 18-mile round trip overall. Well worth it. That day, we passed both a medium-sized grizzly and a large bull moose, as well as marmots and mountain goats near the summit itself. We got rained on, hailed on, and sunny skies and the terrain proved to be incredibly diverse. There are rivers, creeks, dead and flourishing forests, colorful and interesting flora, unique rope/plank bridges, and breathtaking views from the peak and meadows. Would definitely do again if in the Glacier area. Take bear spray, and be careful traveling in the late fall and early spring. Huzzah!

Hidden Lake Overlook Trail

beautiful trail. we were at Glacier early in August 2014 and hiked this trail with our young children, ages 10, 8, and 7. There was hardly anyone else on the trail, as it was nearing sunset, but ... the beauty! Completely blew us away when we finally reached the top! There was a bear seen in the area so we could not go down to the lake, but felt the chill in the air and watched the sun light up the mountains and it was more than enough. Cant wait to go back someday!

Cedar Lakes & Scenery Mountain
by

1 Completed 1 Reviews

These are two separate trails. The trail heads are about 25 yards apart. Scenery is the first, then Cedar Lakes comes right after. If you choose the Cedar Lakes trail bring your bear spray, lots of huckleberry's. Grizzley bears have been reported in the area. Cedar lakes follows Cedar creek most the way, its in the shade and beautiful walk. A slight grade the entire way, that will get your legs and lungs a workout. Upper Cedar Lake is spectacular. A small primitive campsite, right on the lake,.
Scenery Mountain trail, is a old logging road, if the gate is open it will save you a few miles of climbing, the view is great along the road, once on the actual trail, it follows the ridge. No water on this trail, and if its summer you will be in the sun on the road portion.
