This trail is easy to overlook, as it isn't marked on the eastward drive toward the Rockies, although it is well marked heading west. This is probably because they don't want people stopping to make a left turn across traffic on a mountainous road. This...More

Atmospheric short walk right by the highway. Well worth stopping and stretching your legs. You’re away from the traffic within seconds.

A perfect little stop to explore nature. Our 5 year old was able to do the trail with no complaints and the setting is gorgeous.

Most of the trail is shaded so it was nice even on a hot day. Trail starts off fairly level. Once you start going over the boulders though it becomes a little tricky. They have done an outstanding job with the trail here because it...More

Someone went to a lot of work to create this trail and it is definitely worth your time. It will take you around 30 minutes. The entire trail is made out of rocks set in a beautiful wooded setting. It's almost magical to be there....More

We walked the Rockgarden Trail on our visit to Glacier National Park last week. It only takes about 20 minutes, but is a great little woodland trail which opens out towards the end with excellent views of the gaciers on the opposite side of the...More

Kids will enjoy scrambling around on the large boulders, but for us the proximity to the busy and noisy freeway made it feel less like actually being in the wilderness Very short walk - took us about 15 minutes (8 year old).

I love that trail. It takes about 20 minutes, and it feel like what you'd encounter on a wild hike. This is not a board walk. If you have problem with your ankles, don't go. If not, don't miss it ! I read the comment...More

One of the best stops I made. If you happen to catch the turnoff make sure you take the time to see this great trail. Natural and man made blended together to make for a awesome trail.
