Happy Trails

End of the season

It has been another amazing Glacier summer of hiking and adventure. We are glad you visited.

Time has come to prepare for winter snow, sort the summer photo album, clean our boots, and start daydreaming about the next chance we will get to relax in the Granite Park Chalet dining room.

I am sure that a great many people have questions about the 2020 season. We do not know much right now. We will begin accepting reservations on January 13. Sperry Chalet is still on track to re-open next year. We are working on the particulars of the operating dates and fares. Check back later this fall for all the details.

All trails into Granite Park Chalet closed

The National Park Service has closed all trails into the Granite Park Chalet area on the evening of Sunday the 18th. This is due to unusual grizzly bear activity.

Chalet guests planning to arrive on Monday are invited to contact the chalet office between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm for the latest information. At this time we do not know when the trails will open again.

Guest and campers currently in the Granite Park area can depart along the Loop Trail or the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail, the Highline Trail will be closed in both directions.

The National Park Service will provide us with updated information as soon as possible, but we do not expect any new information before Monday Afternoon.

Highline Trail open again

Glacier is a land of many surprises, and this is a fun one. Please enjoy the Highline Trail safely. The trail remains posted for bear activity, so call out your presence, carry your bear spray, and be safe out there.

Happy Hiking

Highline trail closed

The National Park Service has closed the Highline Trail from Logan Pass to Granite Park Chalet due to bear activity. There is currently no forecast for how long this closure may last. You can check for the most current trail status information online or through any visitor center.
