A long, rough drive into the heart of the Purcell Mountains leads to a pair of trails—only a few miles apart—that will take your breath away. They are short, steep routes to the spine of this glaciated range, but the exertion isn’t as breathtaking as the scenery. Either hike is worth its own overnight trip. Camp out or reserve a bunk in the hiker’s hut at Jumbo Pass. Day hikers might like to go light and do both trails in a weekend or a long day in grizzly bear country. Call ahead for updates on the area’s deteriorating roads and bridges. The hike to Monica Meadows starts just under elev. 6,000 feet and temporarily leaves the view of Horseshoe Glacier and Macbeth Ice Fields and gets right to business. Seven fairly steep switchbacks gain about 1,000 feet in 1 mile before moderating and contouring around a ridge. Enjoy the raven's-eye view south across Glacier Creek to the Horseshoe Glacier. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States.
