Complete Guide to Hiking Grinnell Glacier Overlook in Glacier NP

Glacier National Park is known for its mountain scapes, scenery, and  hikes. Unfortunately, with even the most well-planned itinerary, it can  take time to see everything the park offers.

But there is one hike that can get you pretty close: Grinnell Glacier Overlook.

Grinnell Glacier Overlook is a bucket list hike that will weave you in  and out of Glacier’s most beautiful peaks until you get to a viewpoint  of Grinnell Glacier.

Some folks choose this option because it gets you to the Overlook  faster, BUT you will have a steep climb ahead of you and get few views.

Hiking to Grinnell Glacier Overlook via the Highline Trail will take  you longer to get to the Overlook, but the climb is gradual and really  scenic.
