Highline Trail is open!

The beautiful and popular Highline Trail from Logan Pass is now open.

Be ready for some snow crossings and wet trail conditions this week. Now go take a hike!

Yay! Granite Park Chalet is open!

We are excited for a new year of hiking and mountain adventures and we can't wait for you to join us.

Going to the Sun Road is open and the shuttle service will start in a few days on July 1. If you need to park at the Loop Trailhead before the shuttle service begins, we recommend getting there early, the parking will fill up quickly.

The Loop Trail is currently your best choice for getting to Granite Park Chalet. There is still some snow on the last half mile approach to the chalet, and patchy snow in the vicinity. Good waterproof boots will help you.

The Swiftcurrent Pass Trail from Many Glacier is open, but expect to find a snow covered trail at the highest elevations. Route finding skills, as well as those good boots will be important if you choose this route.

We do not have any forecast for the opening of the Highline Trail. This trail is extremely dangerous when it is snow covered and posted as closed, please be safe and respect the trail closed signs.

Happy Hiking!

Dinner time

Our pre-order menu is now available for the 2018 season. You may place your order online here.

Our menu is designed to be easy to prepare, easy to clean up, and tasty to eat. Just as important, pre-ordering can make your backpack lighter. Your food will be waiting for you in the Granite Park kitchen when you arrive.

Happy Hiking!

Sperry Chalet open house

Chalet appreciators should be aware of an event coming up on February 28. The National Park Service is seeking public comment about the future of Sperry Chalet.

A community event entitled “The Sperry Chalet Experience: Past, Present, and Future” to engage with the public, explore the nature of the Sperry Chalet visitor experience, and hear about what pieces of that experience are important to retain as the National Park Service rebuilds Sperry Chalet.

The program will be held on February 28 from 6:30 -8:30 p.m. at the Flathead Valley Community College Arts and Technology Building, Room 139 in Kalispell, MT.

For those of you on the far side of the horizon and unable to attend the open house, the park will also post a newsletter on the National Park Service Planning Website [https://parkplanning.nps.gov/] describing preliminary rebuilding concepts with an opportunity for public comment either online or via written letter.
