Trail shared by Nate Jones

This well-marked, charmingly wooded trail feels like you have escaped into the wild.

Features Wildflowers · Wildlife

Going-To-The-Sun Road is closed to motorized traffic in the fall-spring.

Runner Notes

Pay particular attention to roots and rocks in the trail. The trail is well maintained, but there are still obstacles that could be dangerous for trail runners.

Description

Glacier National Park provides a free shuttle service included in the price of your day pass. This shuttle service will take you straight to the trailhead a couple miles east of Logans Pass. From Going-To-The-Sun Road, there are spectacular views of the surrounding mountain range.

When you enter the trail, dense woods will quickly engulf you. Visibility is limited from the trail but when there are breaks in the trees you can catch glimpses of mountains, some of which have views of glaciers. There are small obstacles such as roots, logs, and rocks to navigate around which give the trail an extra dimension beyond just running.

After a little over a mile, the trail runs into Piegan Pass. Taking a right, you could follow a section of Piegan Pass about 2 miles back to Going-To-The-Sun Road. Going to the left, you can connect with the majority of Piegan Pass. Going left will also take you towards Siyeh Pass, which is a more difficult 7.5-mile trail which leads back to Going-To-The-Sun Road.

Flora & Fauna

There are lots of wildflowers, fungus, trees, and small animals on this trail. I have heard this trail is also frequented by bears so bring your bear spray.
