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.

Cracker lake - One of the prettiest lakes in the park. And fairly easy to get to by a 6 mile trail leading from the Many Glacier Hotel. The trail is often traveled by horses and you are likely to pass over their poop along the way :( Once you get to the lake you will find one of the best campsites in the park. It is also a very popular campsite so try to reserve ahead of time.

as of 6/26 there were just a couple of patches of snow, one about 10 feet long and another about 40 feet long. No big deal. It was cold and blustery w/ overcast but a great hike as always.
