Swiftcurrent Pass Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Brendan Lynch

Swiftcurrent Lookout in Glacier National Park offers an on top of the world feeling if you're willing to make the trek. 

Take this beautiful hike up Swiftcurrent Mountain to the Fire Lookout (8436 ft). The hike is 7.1 miles one-way from from the Swiftcurrent Inn parking lot trailhead.

The elevation gain is 2,307 feet. The First 3 miles or so are a flat hike where you'll pass by several famous lakes and gain only about 500 feet. Therefore, the majority of the elevation gain is in the last 2/3rds of this hike, but its well worth it for the views.
