Busy trailhead but beautiful hike. We accidentally took the electric maintenance trail straight up the side of the mountain. Wouldn't recommend, but would recommend the Picnic Lakes Loop route.
Beautiful, easy climb on a weekday after camping at Black Lake!
Great hike with the wife, with views into Glacier and goats along the trail!
Fun trying to pick out distant peaks in Glacier and seeing baby goats
Great hike. Nice views too!
Kyle, you might have been the person my wife and I had a brief chat with on the summit? You pointed out the all lady bugs on the foliage?
Truly stunning views to GNP and down to Flathead Valley. Seeing a herd of mountain goats up close made it that much better
This mountain is a family favorite, but haven't been up in a while so it was good to be back. Unusually calm at summit, made it great for busting out the gnp map and identifying peaks.
Some huge cornices to be careful of but otherwise the snow seemed pretty safe, was very warm out, over 75 in the valley. Still around 5 feet of snowpack in east and north facing slopes, some south and west facing slopes are bare up to 6000 feet.
6/21/17 w/huge group of people for summer solstice!
6/23/17 went back up to camp on the summit
Started from Camp Misery and hiked the trail following the northwest ridge. It was smoky due to all of the wildfires in the area.
With Rebecca Lahr via Trail 717. Absolutely no views on top due to cloud cover. Continued on the trail down towards Picnic Lakes before looping out to the trailhead.
What a great climb. Ran into a goat too. It was definitely a hot one but such great views.
First peak in the Swans, was happy to summit with my girlfriend. Not much snow at the top, and great weather with clear views!
A jewel in the jewel.
Had a great afternoon hike with Amy & the dogs. Up the trail on the NW Ridge, then over to Picnic Lakes for a pit stop before looping back to the car. Great hike, a classic for sure.
Was in the area doing some snow/glacier travel training and decided to bag the peak. Great day to be out. Pass lots and lots of people on their way up to the top.
Hiked with my husband and a few friends. Was foggy and chilly but beautiful country and nice views into the Jewel Basin
Another foggy, windy, chilly day but it was still a great hike. The trail was loaded with huckleberries for an added bonus. The summit gave us a view into the east valley and that's a beautiful area to backpack and fish.
