Montana Fall, Hiking September 24, 2018
by Jessica Wick If You Can Only Hike 1 Montana Trail This Fall, You’ll Want To Make It This One
Autumn in Montana is absolutely gorgeous — and often short. We’re prone to some pretty early snowfall here in the Treasure State, especially in the Glacier National Park area. But if you can work in one single hike this season, that’s where you should be.
If you have time for a Glacier National Park trip this season and you're up for a challenge, hike the Grinnell Glacier Trail.
To reach the trailhead, just follow the Many Glacier Road until you see clearly marked signs for the Grinnell Glacier Trail.
The trail is just over 9 miles long in its entirety, so it's not for beginners.
However, aside from its length, it's not extraordinarily difficult.
The tail takes you through some of the most scenic parts of the park, and it's especially amazing in the autumn.
The changing leaves at Glacier are incredible.
The views from this hike are unparalleled.
Aside from Grinnell Glacier, you'll see Swiftcurrent Lake, Lake Josephine, alpine meadows, waterfalls, and of course, plenty of fall foliage.
It won't be long before this beautiful area is covered in snow, so if you want to see it in all its fall glory, you'l better go soon.
Fall foliage typically peaks at the park in early October.
Come fall in love with Glacier in the autumn.
This trail is iconic for a reason, and if you're an avid hiker, it's a bucket list adventure for sure.
