3. The Highline Trail to Grinnell Glacier Overlook
Where: Glacier National Park, Montana
Distance: 11.8 miles round-trip
I don’t know if it’s the unique landscape, fresh mountain air or over-consumption of huckleberry pie… but every square inch of Glacier National Park feels more beautiful than the next. The Highline Trail is a must-see when you visit. What makes it so special? Instead of climbing and waiting for the perfect 360-degree view, you have it for nearly the entire hike! You walk along the continental divide surrounded by crystal-blue lakes, glaciers and rugged mountain tops. If you’re lucky, you may even catch some wildlife admiring the scenery with you.
Pro tip: Take the 0.6-mile add-on path up to Grinnell Glacier Lookout. It’s steep and your legs will be yelling but your eyes will thank you.
