Hiking

With 734 miles of maintained trails, Glacier National Park is a hiker's paradise. From short hikes to multi-day backpacking trips, the park's complex trail system offers a vast array of hiking tours for visitors.

For a shorter, family-friendly hike, stroll along Trail of the Cedars as its boardwalk winds through ancient red cedar trees or consider extending your hike by making the easy trek to Avalanche Lake. From Logan Pass, set out on the boardwalk and be rewarded with 360-degree views as you make your way toward Hidden Lake Overlook. In the Many Glacier Valley, take a walk on the Swiftcurrent Nature Trail or venture to Apikuni Falls. There are also many ranger-led hikes available during the summer months; view the schedule here.
