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.

Cobalt Lake - A 5.7 mile hike from the Two Medicine Lake parking lot. The campground is ok. Most hikers use Cobalt Lake to get to the Two Medicine Pass.

When hiking to Cobalt Lake, you will pass Rockwell Falls. I would recommend that you climb up the trail along side of the waterfall until you reach the top. There are many places to sit and have lunch or look out over the valley below. Just before you cross the bridge by the waterfall, you will find the trail off to the right that leads up the hillside.

NPS report: Trail is holding on small mounds of snow that pose no real problem from the south shore trail junction to Rockwell Falls. This patrol only went approximatly one and a half miles past the falls. After the falls the snow is heavy and the trail is difficult to follow. Ice axe recommended past the falls. 06/02/09 per 903

Have hiked to Cobalt twice. The second time was in mid June and we had a ton of snow up there still. Very hard to find our way. Be sure to stop at Rockwell Falls and climb up the side of the waterfalls to get up above them. My favorite place to sit and have lunch.
