Overview: This historic and scenic hike lies in the southeast section of Glacier NP. During the fire of 1910, a burning ember blew from the fire burning on the west side of the pass, over the crest, and set the east side ablaze. Since that time the name Firebrand has stuck. The forest has been slow to return thus the high alpine views are mostly still unobstructed. This is a relatively pristine area, having escaped the mobs that flock to other parts of the park. The distant views are just super on this trail..One can see the foothills of the northern Rocky Mtns in the immediate distance with active drainages and numerous small water falls abound. In fall, it is said that this is an excellent location to see bull elk trying out the strength of their bugling calls! This trail contours around Calf Robe Mtn then enters a sub alpine basin on its way to Firebrand Pass at 6951'.
