Perched above the tree line, atop the wind-lashed Continental Divide, and blocked by snow for most of the year, 2026m (6646ft) Logan Pass – named for William R Logan, Glacier’s first superintendent – is the park’s highest navigable point by road. Two trails, Hidden Lake Overlook (which continues on to Hidden Lake itself) and Highline, lead out from here. Views are stupendous; the parking situation, however, is not – you might spend a lot of time searching for a spot during peak hours.
