Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Pete, if you do not want to waste your morning waiting on me I totally understand. I will find a way to make that day work for my tired a#@. : )

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Hey Pete, a few thoughts about Sunday. As I said, my flight arrives at 12:15 am (3:15 am my time). I am staying the first night in Columbia Falls. There is no way in hell I can be up and over to Apgar by 5:30 am. However, if you are willing to meet me a few hours later I would be up for whatever see...

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

More great information Pete! My only concern about meeting up with Todd on Tuesday for Grinnell Glacier is the drive. 2 hours to St Mary's from Apgar so I heard. Then to the trailhead is another 40 minutes I heard. Todd, would you be at St. Mary's so we could drive that bit together if this flies?

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Give me some time to take in all these suggestions guys. Also, I called the main office and found out that they are extending shuttle service through late September due to so many people visiting the park. Express shuttle from Apgar to Logans ends on the 4th, the 4th being the last day. But again re...

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Ok so how about this idea. On Sunday, my first day when I hopefully won't be a walking zombie, I could do Piegan Pass, and avoid the crowds at both Avalanche and Hidden Lake. My only question is, isn't the beginning portion of this trail the same as Siyeh Pass? If so, how much of it is the same and ...

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

And if anyone thinks I am overly concerned about smoke and visibility please let me know. I mean I heard they are even closing the McDonald lodge early due to smoke issues. I am flying from North Carolina and I want to make each day count.

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Ha! Yeah thanks for planning Pete and Todd. LOL If I don't have to drive I am IN! I am staying at the Belton Chalet. Will be easy to meet you at the Apgar entrance on the 4th at 5:30 am! You can drive and I will sit back and enjoy the views....if I understand the plans correctly! So now that Monday ...

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Todd,

Yeah I will probably skip the ranger led hike. I just thought it might be cool to listen to some history along the way but probably not worth the slowness. I will look for you on the 4th!

Re: Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Great suggestions. Thanks to all of you. It sounds like I should drop Firebrand Pass (unless someone REALLY sells it) and use that extra day to do Iceberg Lake. How long does it take to do the Iceberg Lake Trail? Also, is this the "best" trek from Many Glacier? How does it compare to Grinnell, which...

Best trails near Logans Pass and Trekking Buddies

Hi. I will be trekking doing day hikes from West Glacier from Sunday the 3rd through Wednesday the 7th. I have never been to GNP before and am learning that the distances are great when driving to trail heads. I have researched the best trails from and near Logan Pass but would like some input. Firs...
