WEST GLACIER, MT. – The popular Highline Trail at Logan Pass is open to foot travel, but some of the trail is still covered by snow and ice.

Snow drifts exist in areas of the trail and drop-offs between the edge of a drift and the trail exist in some locations. It is recommended to hike with appropriate hiking and self-arrest equipment, including an ice axe, hiking poles, appropriate boots, and knowledge on how to use the equipment, and awareness of individual hiking skills and limitations. All hikers are encouraged to turn around if conditions exceed what is comfortable or beyond personal experience and limitations.

Many of the trails at higher elevations have snow and visitors are reminded to be prepared and plan ahead. For information on park trails and visitor services throughout the park, visit Glacier's website www.nps.gov/glac, or call the park at 406-888-7800.
