Summit the fifth tallest peak in Glacier National Park at 10,014 feet (3,052 m). Enjoy an unbelievable display of not just the jaw-dropping Cracker Lake, but the entire park, it's mountains, valleys, and glaciers.

Once the Going-To-The-Sun Road has opened fully, this massive peak is accessible by driving to Siyeh Bend on the east side of the Logan Pass Visitors Center.

Plan on a sun up to sun down adventure. Choose a sunny summer day and head up to hit the trail! Park at Siyeh Bend, and start on the Piegan Pass Trail (Siyeh Bend Trail). Continue roughly one mile until the trail runs into the Continental Divide Trail (Piegan Pass Trail). Hang a left and continue another 1.5 miles until you reach, and see a sign to Siyeh Pass Trail. Head to the right and up Siyeh Pass. This pass is breathtaking and known for it's beautiful flowers that grow in the valley. Be cautious, bears populate and frequent this area.

The route(s) to the summit can be a tricky one to find. The entrance route ascends through some drainage gully's on the south slope that are only visible once you've hiked out of the forest area of valley. Pay close attention to loose rock, scree, wet rock from sporadic runoffs and uneven terrain. Proceed with caution and a well thought out plan. There are many books on climbing routes to Glacier Park's summits. They will give you more detail into which route to take. It is worth the investment.

Once you've reach the top, sit down and rest a little while-you've certainly earned it!

Put it on the list!

I'm all about those high peaks, but those colours look phenomenal, Pete! Thanks for posting, I've been eyeing up Siyeh for a couple summers now and think I'll have to take the plunge this summer.
