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.

Grinnell Glacier - This is one the most popular trails in the park. And for good reason. Hikers can make their way all the way to the foot of a real glacier. The trail takes you by Swiftcurrent Lake, Lake Josephine, above beautiful Grinnell Lake, and finally ends at Upper Grinnell Lake. The trail is about 5.5 miles and climbs moderately.
