Wednesday, November 6, 2013 Adds 5 New Hikes to Website is proud to announce the addition of five new hikes to our website. You could make the argument that each of these are quintessential Glacier hikes. They include:

* Swfitcurrent Pass - Although this is one of the toughest hikes in Glacier, it includes tons of spectacular scenery. You'll pass by three lakes and a waterfall while traveling up the Swiftcurrent Valley. Once above the valley floor the trail offers outstanding birds-eye views of six lakes, as well as the Swiftcurrent Glacier. At the pass you'll have stunning views of Heavens Peak and Granite Park.

* Siyeh Pass Loop - This one-way hike offers visitors the chance to take-in some of the best of what Glacier has to offer. Hikers will pass through the incredibly beautiful Preston Park, climb up to one of the highest maintained trails in Glacier, and then back down the Baring Creek Valley where you'll have a relatively close-up view of Sexton Glacier.

* Hidden Lake - This extremely popular hike, starting from Logan Pass, visits the Hidden Lake Overlook where you’ll have outstanding panoramic views into the heart of Glacier, before descending down to the shores of a beautiful alpine lake.

* Bullhead Lake - You'll pass by three lakes and a waterfall while traveling up the Swiftcurrent Valley on this easy moderate hike. Each lake on this hike provides outstanding views of the surrounding mountains. You'll also stand a pretty good chance of seeing a moose.

* Gable Pass - This is truly a little known gem. Once you ascend Lee Ridge you'll have expansive panoramic views that include Chief Mountain, Gable Mountain, as well as the highest point in Glacier National Park, 10,466-foot Mt. Cleveland. In my opinion, these are some of the best views in Glacier Park.
