Glacier National Park - Hiker Forum Board

Go back to home page
The hikers in the park are the people who report on this board. This is not a government sponsored site. If you are a hiker and just made a hike then please help by updating the trail board with your hiking experiences and with the latest hiking conditions at Glacier. You can even upload your own trail pictures.

Every trail featured in the Glacier hiking forum board is colored in on the map below. Blue trails are lower in elevation and snow melts away faster on these trails. Many of the lower elevation trails are generally open by May. Red trails are higher elevation trails which can be clogged with snow well into July. To see the details of any particular trail on the Glacier hiking forum board simply click on the appropriate area in the map.

Highline Trail - The Highline Trail is aptly named as it takes you along some of the most scenic high trails in the park. Hikers coming up from the Goat Haunt area will have a grueling climb to reach the Highline Trail after hiking through a fairly boring and mosquito filled valley. Most people start instead from Granite Park.

Best Place to Access Granite Park? I'm planning a hike for August and want to start at Granite Park. I have limited time and want to spend one night at a campground before entering the trail proper. Where's the best place to camp? Is it possible at Packer's Roost? Or am I better at Avalanche Creek? Thanks, paul

Grizzly bears in the park have a wide variety of food sources, including glacier lily bulbs, insects, and berries. They may also make an early season meal of mountain goats that were swept down in avalanches over the winter.
