Description

This trail follows the regular St. Mary's Glacier Trail until you get to the top of the glacier. Rather then going west to James peak you go south for a few miles. This will mostly be flat until you get to a very small incline of a few hundred feet near the "rock house". While following the trail you'll have great views to the south and west. You'll see a massive pile of rocks (this is the "house") with a mailbox in the middle. There is a note that you should bring a rock here and write a message on it and add it to the pile so you should come prepared and pack a rock with your message.
