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.

Hiker Comments {1}

Ahern drift was blasted and treaded on 7/22/09 and is now passable for hikers. It is not recommended for stock at this time. The Cattle Queen Drift (about 2.5 mi. north of Ahern) forms a classic snowbridge which may not be apparent thus it is recommended that hikers take the faint alternate trail that crosses the stream course approx. 120' below the drift. The trail north of Ahern is scheduled for maintenance by 8/15/09. 250 Snow Cover: 5%, SNOW HAZARD, 07/23/2009 per 223. Trees Down: 3, 07/23/2009 per 223. SNOW HAZARD: See above for Cattle Queen Drift. 07/23/2009 per 223.
