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.

Pitamakan Pass - Its about 9 miles to Pitamakan Pass, 2.5 miles to Dawson Pass and then 6.7 miles back to Two Medicine Lake parking lot. This completes what is easily the best loop trail in the park. The entire length is a little over 18 miles. The trek from Pitamakan to Dawson Pass is one of the most scenic trail segments in the park. You can also start from the other direction. There is no real advantage to going one direction versus the other. Highly recommended trail

Glacier National park was named for the glaciers that carved, sculpted, and formed this landscape millions of years ago. Despite the recession of current glaciers, the park's name will not change when the glaciers are gone.
