For those looking for one of the tougher, but most rewarding hikes in Glacier National Park, Perley Rock – This link opens in a new browser tab must be crossed off the bucket list. Plan for 6-8 hours of steep switchbacks, relentless climbing, running into a marmot family, and remember to save some energy as the return hike is challenging for the downgrade. Poles are a handy tool for this one!
The reward at the end, is the moment you dip your toes into the waters of the Illecillewaet Glacier. To help motivate you to get back to the bottom, join us at Heather Mountain Lodge for a post-hike dinner and wine on our patio!
