Hike to Piegan Mountain

    5 miles 3000 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Joanna Adams

    A great beginner/intermediate climb for a short day hike in Glacier National Park!

    Start this hike at the Lunch Creek parking lot just over Logan Pass. Follow the climber's trail when it will lead you above a waterfall and into Lunch Creek Basin. Looking straight ahead, you will see Pollock mountain, continue to your right for the peak approach (if you go all the way to the right, you can avoid the cliffs). If not, the cliffs are not too difficult to pick through. You can zig-zag up the mountain to the top. You may reach the false summit first which has incredible views of a glacier. From there, it is an easy ascent to the top.
