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.

Scenic Point - A popular trail starting near the Two Medicine area. The hike to scenic point is about 3 miles. A lingering snow bank near the end can be dangerous for inexperienced snowpack travelers. Nice views are found along the trail.

Glacier Pictures Did you know?
Many donít realize the glaciers in the park began melting almost a hundred years ago with rapid melting from 1917 to 1926. The climate then cooled from the 1940s to 1979 and some of the Glaciers actually grew in size.
