East Glacier, MT
A half-day hike from Two Medicine Road to Scenic Point, 3.1 miles (5 km); or from Two Medicine Road to East Glacier, 10.0 miles (16 km). This trail is most commonly taken as a short hike from the Two Medicine Road to Scenic Point and back. Looking up the desolate creek valley from this hillside, Mount Henry raises its forbidding head to the south. The trail climbs to the summit of the windblown dome known as Scenic Point. On a clear day, you can see out across the high plains all the way to the Sweetgrass Hills, some 100 miles distant. Looking to the west, Dawson Pass is clearly visible, with jagged peaks surrounding it. Only the most hardy plants grow in the arid, wind-swept environment on top of Scenic Point, and the poor growing conditions cause a stunted growth form in these plants.
