The Highline Trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in Glacier National Park. Starting at Logan Pass Visitor Center, the trail immediately impresses (or frightens) hikers with a quarter-mile long six-foot-wide exposed section of rocky trail that looms a hundred feet above the Going to the Sun Road.

Grinnell Glacier Trail, located in the Many Glacier area, is one of the most popular hikes in Glacier National Park, and for good reason. Its vistas are incredible (and well documented online) and the trail is well maintained and can be hiked if you are in reasonable shape.
A black bear sow and three cubs entered our campsite in Many Glacier Campground early one morning. To say we were a bit surprised would be an understatement. Fortunately, neither the bears our family were hurt and all turned out well. What an experience!
Many Glacier is the best campground we have ever stayed at. I now fully understand why it is one of the most difficult campsites to get a reservation at in the entire National Park Service.
Avalanche Lake Trail is located 5.5 miles east of the Lake McDonald Lodge, next to Avalanche Campground, along the Going to the Sun Road. As its namesake implies, it leads to Avalanche Lake and it is accessed via the Trail of Cedars trailhead/trail.
With 178 campsites, Fish Creek Campground is situated on the northwest shore of Lake McDonald and is the second largest campground in Glacier National Park.
