The hike to Comeau Pass in Glacier National Park is a challenging one, but offers up plenty of stunning peak views in the park.

Your hike will being at the Sperry Trailhead adjacent to the Lake McDonald Lodge. As you get moving on the hike, you'll pass the Sperry Chalet. If 17.5 miles seems a little long for a day hike, you can look into staying over at the Sperry Chalet (reservations required). This will mean that you'll be cutting the climb up to the pass to a 1500' elevation gain from the Chalet. You'll be finishing this hike with a total elevation gain of about 5,000 feet.

Although this 17.5 mile hike will take you some time, if you have a little extra energy once you reach the pass, you can head to Sperry Glacier before hiking back to the trailhead.
