Lunch Creek Glacier National Park
Lunch Creek is the first stream crossing on the east side of Logan Pass. A climber’s trail leads towards the Piegan summit for a short way and then fades as it reaches class 2 gullies which lead to the summit. I was only a couple minutes up the trail from the highway, but unbeknownst to me some rams got spooked while trying to cross the road, and came charging up the trail with people scattering left and right. It may be easiest to follow the route suggested by Edwards.
Lunch Creek in Glacier National Park
MaryEllenM27 wrote a review Dec. This is still one of our favorite spots along the east side of Going to the Sun Road. We made a trip up there during the Covid shutdown in We were gifted when a herd of Big Horn Sheep crossed through the creek area. We see that quite often at Lunch Creek but we were able to capture a photo of them this time. It is an example of the way the builders of the Going To the Sun Road took the time to make the engineering features blend in with the environment.
Just Below the Summit of Logan Pass. You will see it at a hairpin turn in the road. In spite of its name The area is one of the best places for photos. A tailgate lunch or on one of the huge rock-block safety-barriers along the road.
In mid-July it is chock full of the famous white Lunch Creek Glacier National Park bear grass. It is the signature flower in the park but strangely the bears do not eat it at all. Sometimes one at a time and occasionally as a herd of several. Once we walked the trail in the company of a Big Horn Think zoom lenses They will butt you onto your own little tush or off of the trail if you get too close.
There are some little walking tracks that sort of meander up Lunch Creek Glacier National Park the cascades to explore. The area is just great for photos and one of the best spots for your annual family Holiday Photo cards.
Because of the creek and the moisture around its edges, it also offers a season’s worth of other wildflowers well into Fall. Its not a sure thing at that time of year.
Lunch Creek Route
The cliffs above the basin can be climbed pretty much anywhere with little difficulty. Bring water if you don’t want to get giardia! A climber’s trail leads towards the Piegan summit for a short way and then fades as it reaches class 2 gullies which lead to the summit. Nearly sitting on top of the Continental Divide, Lunch Creek has been a historic rest stop for Sun Road visitors for nearly a century.
