Summary:
There are only four words to describe this trail: SICK, SICK, and SICK! This trail is very similar to the east glacier trail at first. You go up for about 3/4 of a mile over some rocks but nothing realy epic. After you cross the wood bridge there is a section you could only get up if you were a freakin' goat. After this short walk you start riding up again until you hit some stairs. You can walk your bike up these and continue to the glacier. Coming down makes all the hiking worth while, be carefull though last time my buddies and I did it we ran into 4 bears!

Recommended Route:
Go up the trail, and then come back down.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
East Glacier Trail, Tolch Rock, Montana/Windfall Lake, Montana Creek Trails
