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.

Avalanche Lake - One of the most traveled trails in the park. Just 3 miles gets you to a classic alpine lake with several majestic waterfalls cascading down into the lake. There is even decent fishing. Also you can hike to this lake earlier in the year.

Just went up to Avalanche lake on Monday, May 11. Trail was muddy most of the way, with some ice on the trail, but nothing that couldn't be walked around. Decent amount of snow close to the lake, but no more than a few inches on the trail. A new avalanche has come down into the lake, taking out some older trees--very cool!
