Nyack Crossing Professional Review and Guide
"This is a long backpacking expedition for experienced hikers into the most remote section of Glacier National Park. Many trails in Glacier Park are heavily used. Others receive surprisingly little use, although they host as many backcountry rewards. The Nyack Loop is an excellent example of the latter. Keep in mind, though, that if you plan to ford the river to access the Nyack Creek and Coal Creek trailheads, you have to wait until August to take this trip. Special attractions: A rare opportunity to get away from everything (and everybody) and into the heart of true wilderness."
--Bill Schneider, Best Backpacking Vacations in the Northern Rockies (Falcon Guides).
The Nyack loop was fun and fairly beautiful in its own way. Not in that you were climbing numerous beautiful mountains, but that the valleys that you traversed through offered many spectacular views including breathtaking waterfalls, open fields littered with wildflowers, and mountains all round. And there is a good chance you can enjoy the trail all to yourself, rarely or not even passing another hiker for the duration of the trip. However there was not a lot of variety in the scenery and trail conditions. It was fun, but not overly incredible.
