Glacier Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The wide, gravelly Glacier Trail takes off from the west end of the parking lot and switchbacks steadily up a semidesert hillside covered with grasses, sagebrush, junipers, and even a few prickly pear cacti. After 0.6 mile bear left at a junction with Whiskey Mountain Trail, soon enter the Fitzpatrick Wilderness, and at 0.8 mile come to a junction with the Lake Louise Trail. Go left and cross a sturdy wooden bridge over Torrey Creek, stopping first to admire the stream as it races down a narrow chasm in a roaring cataract."
