Hike to Comeau Pass

Montana Sperry Trailhead

Added by

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 

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.

I'm a professional photographer living and working in Whitefish, Montana. I travel as much as I can with my beautiful wife Megan, and am always scheming a new adventure, or a new way to do an old trip. My passion is the outdoors, and getting people excited about recreating outside. By day, I teach PE and health at the local middle school, by night, I fight crime in a spandex jumpsuit... not really, but I do enjoy taking lots of pictures and working for cool outdoor companies when not at school throwing dodge balls at 8th graders.
