Ascent Trip Report

I used Dennis Poulin's trip report from this site (, pulling driving directions from Dean Molen's summitpost page that Dennis references. Regarding the drive, I will add two points: Total distance from pavement to Logan Pass is about 11.5 miles, and the last 2/3-mile or so has seen erosive water flows that might make it impossible for a passenger sedan to get all the way to the pass, pending road repairs.

For the hiking route, see my GPS track (which basically followed Dennis's track - thanks, Dennis!). On the traverse around point 8501 the lower track was less brushy.
