Two Med vistas  Sucess!

April 22, 2012 - Biked from East Glacier to Running Eagle Falls Trailhead, then hiked the road to the start of the Scenic Point Trail. Surprisingly low snow levels - we only used our snowshoes for the first mile or so along the trail. Watched a grizzly sow and her cub wrestling far below the trail in Apistoki Basin. Spectacular views from the top. Continued along the surprisingly awesome trail all the way to Glacier Park Lodge.

June 13, 2010 - Hiked with a group of 10 to the, um, scenic summit. Only my second hike in the Two Medicine Valley, so I was thrilled to get a new perspective on an unfamiliar area of the park. Great views of Rising Wolf and Mount Helen to the west. Trail was steep, but neverly overly strenuous in my opinion. Fantastic hike!

Scenic Point  Sucess!

Nice, but I don't think it lived up to its name.

A fabulous hike  Sucess!

My wife and I hiked to the top of Scenic Point on our last day in the park after a two week backpacking trip. As a climb, it may not be challenging, but what a magnificent walk! Anyone who has stood on top and seen all the way to the Sweetgrass Hills will not doubt they had climbed a mountain. My wife insists she is not a mountaineer, but since this hike in '02 she has spent more time in the alpine zone than anyone else I know. If you want to catch the bug for climbing, this is a great place to start. Let the suffering come later.

Scenic Point  Sucess!

Visited on the way to Bison and The Head when I was adding to GNP peaks climbed list. Since I counted it, I guess my vote is for a mountain page though it isn't a threat to one's humbleness!

Re: Scenic Point

I agree Jim this is a great destination. The whole group I climbed with loved the trip except for the 14 switchbacks before I let them eat lunch!
