Logan Pass, Glacier National Park

4.7
#1 of 120 in Nature in Montana
Cutting through the Rocky Mountains inside Glacier National Park Logan Pass sits along the Continental Divide at an elevation of 2,026 m (6,646 ft). The pass, the highest point in the park accessible by car, is home to grizzly bears, mountain goats, and bighorn sheep as well as wildflowers, glacier lilies, and alpine plants. Two popular hiking trails connect at the pass, so you can continue your ascent on foot if you like. Check at the visitor center at the top of the pass for information on hiking trails and possible wildlife activity. Bring snacks, as there is nowhere to buy food. Be prepared for heavy crowds during the peak summer season; you can board a free shuttle bus to avoid trying to find a parking spot at the top.

  • Logan's Pass sits on the dividing point for the US--The Continental Divide. Although it is one of the highpoints in the park at 6,700 feet, it is significantly less elevated than many of Colorado's pe...  more »

  • There is a trail behind Logan Pass that took us to Hidden Lake and it was absolutely AMAZING! It took us through what not? It had snow, rocks, dirt, concrete trail, and wood trail!! It was so amazing. It was 1.3 miles and it seemed way longer but was totally worth it! Specially going through the snow 🙃 Go there definitely 👌👌 recommended - 100%
  • Logan Pass is at 6,646 feet where the Going-to-the-Sun-Highway crosses the Continental Divide. It is the highest point on the Going-to-the-Sun-Highway, and roughly 2/3 of the distance across the Park. The scenery is quite beyond words and this is another Must-Do when visiting Glacier National Park. We found that many of our pictures showed mountains with their peaks in the clouds. What we could see was marvelous so I know the rest would be grand too. The Visitor Center is atop the Continental Divide, and from there access is available to the Highline Trail, known for wildflowers during the summer. Access for other trails is there also. The Visitor Center is open mid-June to mid-September and is staffed with helpful rangers and several exhibits. There is also a gift shop. The restrooms are nice and very welcome. We had hoped to enjoy a picnic lunch we brought with us to eat there, but this area is also known for high winds, and this day the wind was frigid. We ate in the car and enjoyed the view from inside. Food service is not available here. There is what seems like a lot of parking, but it is often difficult to find an available place, as this is a busy area.
  • Went through the pass 30 years ago and returned yesterday. Still love the scenery but shocked at the lack of glaciers, waterfalls, snow and wildlife. It is a beautiful and well kept National Park. Many rude drivers who have no interest in doing this scenic drive- speeding by- not sure why they are there. We patiently waited for a parking spot and were able to get 1within 5 mins. A few short hikes for some great photo ops.
  • This is a gorgeous area of Glacier National Park, with some of the best hikes starting here, but as others have said the parking is INSANE! Get here early, I mean early. There are restrooms here and a smaller albeit nice visitor center. There is also some very good chances of seeing wildlife.
  • I have seen photos of Logan Pass and it looks wonderful, but as with any mountain area one is always dependent on the weather. When we were there the fog, and the smoke from the Howe Ridge fire, created less than ideal conditions, but the drive up was really good.
