This was one of my last hikes in Glacier and one of my more ambitious. I started at Logan Pass and then took the Highline Trail to Granite Park Chalet, and then Swiftcurrent Pass and the lookout. I returned the same route and also made a detour up the steep, but short Glacier Overlook Trail on the way to Granite.

The hike was Glacier at its finest. The Highline Trail was one great view after another, highlighted by the ever present Heaven's Peak, the Glacier Overlook Trail and the bumper crop of bear grass along the trail. Granite Chalet was an interesting place and very scenic, but nothing overly exciting. Switfcurrent Pass was windy and the summit and lookout even windier, but the views superb and some of the best in that area of the park. I returned the same route I took to the lookout tower and finished up pretty quickly thanks to the downhills and nice trail.
