This hike is a must-do at glacier. You start at Logan Pass and head north along the continental divide. You can go a mile or all the way to the chalet, its up to you. Regardless, the views are stunning the whole way.

Apart from the awful parking experience known as Logan Pass, this trail has no downsides. You are rewarded with amazing vistas almost from the start and they don't let up. I walked to the haystack and back as my day trip and did it in...More

We enjoyed the hike = most of it closed due to the fires and smoke hazards, but still, the part we saw was nice.

If you're looking for a quick hike - out and back, Haystack Butte would be a good turn-back point (marked in the picture). The hike has good views along the continental divide, up until there and beyond as well. The trail has shade, in spots,...More

My loop of choice was Logan Pass to Swiftcurrent Pass - then back to Logan Pass. I was at the trailhead around 7 am. After seeing the caution sign there about sun exposure and hydration, I went back to my vehicle for more water bottles....More

What a beautiful hike, one of the best I've ever done and seen! We parked early in the morning at the Logans pass and then met with a ranger who we walked with (for free) in a group. We walked maybe 5 min and right...More

Moon 2017 "Glacier National Park" rates this hike as one of the best in the park. A very nice hike beginning at Logan Pass slowly ascending over the course of 7.4 miles to Granite Park Chalet. Trail was crowded at the beginning but thinned out...More

Sure would! I'm assuming the baby would be in a carrier/backpack type thing and that would be fine.
