Scenic Point, Glacier National Park




Scenic Point Hike in the Two Medicine area is a great 3.5 miles (one-way) steep (2450’ climb) hike to a viewpoint with spectacular views. The trails starts in the trees, and at 0.8 miles, there is a short detour to Appistoki Falls, which are nice. The trail opens and there are some great views (and wildflowers) along the way. At the viewpoint (look for the cairns), it is open and you can see views of Lower and Middle Two Medicine Lakes, as well as many mountains.

We recommend that you start the hike early in the day, before 10am, since it can be hot, and the sun is better earlier for photos. The hike took us 4 ½ hours (with a lunch stop and time on top to meander and take pictures). Note that the top can be very windy and cool, so bring a wrap.
