Logan Pass is one of Glacier National Park’s most popular areas. Visitors are drawn here every year for its excellent hikes, scenic views and great visitor’s center.
Stay in one of the many Montana hotels by the park and head right in the heart of the wilderness for some great hiking!
Here is our list of the five best hikes in the Logan Pass Region:
This challenging hike is 10.3 miles one-way, but has big rewards. Waterfalls, wildflowers and views of wildlife in their natural habitat are just a few.
Families will love this hike that is just 2 miles long with a 500-foot elevation gain. The lake itself is surrounded by steep mountains. Come in the spring and you’ll see beautiful cascading waterfalls emptying into the lake.

This is a very short hike that families can enjoy together. It is a .2-mile trail down a boardwalk through some of the largest cedar trees in the state.
Hidden Lake Overlook
This is another boardwalk hike that is 1.5 miles long. It leaves from the Logan Pass Visitor’s Center and is known for having sheep, goats and great views of Glacier National Park.

Note: Before attempting any hike in Glacier National Park, we recommend consulting a qualified Glacier National Park guide, or visiting with a park ranger to get the best up-to-date information on grizzly sightings, trail closures, and weather advisories.
