Most, not all, of the Lake McDonald Trails are serviced by the Glacier Park's FREE shuttle. Use the trail map link to locate the starting area for a particular hike. In the Lake McDonald Trails area there are currently 15 day hikes listed in the 2007 edition of Day Hikes in Glacier. At this point I've hiked 14 of them. These day hikes range from the easiest day hike in the park ~ Trail of the Cedars ~ with zero elevation gain to one of the most difficult day hikes, Mount Brown Lookout, with 4,325 ft. elevation gain.

Shuttle Service starts July 1, 2015.
Stops September 8, 2015
First Shuttle up is at 7:00 AM
Last Shuttle down from Logan Pass
is at 7:00 pm

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream.
Mark Twain
