Grinnell Glacier Virtual Hike

On our last day in Glacier National Park in Montana, we decided to explore the Many Glacier Valley. We hiked as far as we could on the Grinnell Glacier trail, to the overlook of Grinnell Lake. The remainder of the trail to the Glacier was still blocked by snow and ice. In this 8-minute YouTube video courtesy of At Home In Wild Spaces, you can take the entire hike virtually.

This was our favorite hike of the trip. It took us past three lovely lakes, alpine meadows with breathtaking mountains towering over the valley. We spent the morning on this hike, getting an early start to avoid the crowds. This is one of the most popular hikes in the park. The trail runs about six miles, out and back.

  1. Peg and I did some backcountry backpacking at Glacier. Beautiful, but I do remember getting nervous about all the fresh grizzly scat. Did you see any grizzlies out on the trail, Theresa? –Curt
