A six-day backpacking trip from Kintla Lake to Upper Kintla campground to Boulder Pass or to Goat Haunt Ranger Station. The Boulder Pass trail provides access to some of the most rugged and beautiful high country areas in Glacier National Park. High elevations between Boulder and Brown Passes lead to high snow accumulations and late snow melt, making this trail impassable early in the season. The trail begins at Kintla Lake, which is set in a forested valley between tree-clad hills. As the trail winds around the north lakeshore, watch for signs of mule deer and mountain lions that inhabit the dense forest.
