“Primarily a trail through trees to get to an exceptional vantage in the southern section of Glacier.”— Jake Bramante
This trail has a steady grade all the way up. The route is through a pleasant forest giving shade on the southern slope, but limiting views of the mountains across the valley. This finally breaks at about a mile from the top where the trees give way to fantastic mountains all around, from forested hills to jagged rocky peaks.
The staffed lookout becomes visible and you navigate the ridgeline through beargrass and subalpine fir to the summit. Views of this area are fantastic with a sea of mountains in any direction.
