Bears are known to frequent the area especially when the huckleberries are ripe in mid-summer. Off to the right is an up close and personal view of Sexton Glacier.

My last minute decision to hike the Siyeh Pass Trail turned into my favorite day hike in Glacier National Park due to its diversity, distance and difficulty! Sitting at the top of Going to the Sun Road, tucked behind the visitor center, you will find the gorgeous Hidden Lake Trail. We loved this hike for an easy day of exploring Glacier.
My favorite thing about this hike is the abundance of wildflowers in bloom along the trail. Brad got wrapped up in scanning the mountain side for animals. Mountain goats and Bighorn Sheep are everywhere! The trail starts with an easy walk down a paved path. It quickly turns into a boardwalk that was specially built to lift hikers off the tender Alpine Tundra. If you want to step up the difficulty a bit, you can hike another mile down a steep trail to the lake. This is the perfect trail for an early evening hike.
Of all the incredible trails in Glacier National Park, the famous Highline Trail may be the crowning jewel. When I visited Glacier with them, the Highline Trail was the perfect hike for incredible scenery in exchange for not too much effort. And although it is a very popular hike, few people choose to go farther than the first couple of miles, so the trail is not crowded at all. Or taken an extra break to Head out on a quick hike and take a dip in one of the park's many lakes.
Take on the trails leading to the remote corners of the park and towering peaks above. Whatever kind of hike you need, Glacier National Park never disappoints.
Cannon, Craig and Carson did go in. This is the most iconic thing to do and why so many people visit this park. Head out of Glacier National Park and over to Whitefish to spend time at the public beach — where you can rent kayaks, play on the beach, or swim out to the platform. That being the case you will want to bring some towels with. See Goose Island.
