Located at 6,646 feet above sea level is Logan Pass along the Continental Divide, which is at the summit of Going-to-the-Sun Road. This is the highest point at which you can drive your vehicle, but trails such as Hidden Lake can take you much higher. A visitor center is open only during the summer season. The pass is closed during the winter due to the impracticality of keeping the Going-to-the-Sun Road clear of snow and avalanches. East of the pass is the “Big Drift“, which often has sow 100 feet deep.
Trails and observation decks provide excellent opportunities to view wildlife. You are almost guaranteed to see Mountain Goats as they have become adjusted to summertime human visitation. This picture shows a goat in July, shedding its thick winter coat.
Ample parking is available so that you can enjoy the visitors center or hike one of the many trails that branch off from the pass. You must take the Hidden Lake hike, which is a 1/5 mile jaunt through beautiful landscapes.
