Hike to Scenic Point in Glacier National Park

8 Miles Round Trip - 2300 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Scenic Point Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Allie Rippe

A steep hike to a beautiful view of East Glacier and Two Medicine Lake.

Park at the trailhead and begin the hike. The trail starts out relatively flat until you reach a small waterfall. Then, hike up the switchbacks for about 4 miles while gaining around 2300 feet.

From the top, you can see both Upper Two Medicine Lake and Two Medicine Lake. The views are stunning. Turn around on the same path that you came from and start your descent.

Love Montana

Did this last year would do it agian

Tough, but worth it!

This hike was a bit challenging for me, but so incredibly worth it! The views throughout the whole hike are great, but nothing beats when you get to the top! 360 degrees of Glacier and beyond. You can even see the sweet grass hills in Browning! Definitely worth it for the views and it is in the less frequented Two Medicine section of the park.
