Description

Finding the trailhead is a bit of a challenge and best done with a map and some GPS tracks. Follow the road behind the massive, historic East Glacier Lodge across Midvale Creek. Keep an eye out to the right for an obvious trail just before the road begins to bend southeast. This first section of trail is on Blackfeet Reservation and is used by ATVs and mountain bikes, so it is doubletrack and pretty rutted out. The rule of thumb is that when in doubt, follow the most popular road/trail.

This first section meanders through a combination of lodgepole pines, aspens and open meadows. Views of the surrounding peaks are limited, but nice. Eventually, it transitions to a more mature lodgepole forest, then reaches the park boundary. From here the trail is singletrack and in a hall of trees. After a bit of forest, it begins to alternate to some more meadows, but lacking the unobstructed views of Glacier's summits on the east side.

The trail takes you to the intersection of the Firebrand Pass trail.
