3mi there and back, crowded AF. It starts behind the Logan Pass visitor center and ascends straight uphill. Early in the summer, snow is still packed on the trail. The Ranger told us the snow (about a foot deep when we went) typically melts in August making way for beautiful wildflowers. Noted.
It's quite steep and slow going, and it didn't help that we started the hike around noon. It was really crowded and I was not having it. I started a snowball fight with Brandon, because why not? We saw quite a few families of mountain goats (PSA: please keep a safe distance away from them) who were THE CUTEST THINGS EVER.
Also, just for the record, he slipped more times than I did (love you B!).
Some tips: Bring snowshoes, skiis, or a sled if you hike before August.
