Route Description for Beaver River Trail

The Beaver River Trail is a scenic hiking route within Glacier National Park that travels into the backcountry alongside the rushing waters of Beaver River and provides hikers with scenic views of nearby mountain peaks. Along the trail, hikers will follow closely along with the sounds of the rushing river as they travel through the dense forest cover. This route has some moderate changes in elevation; however, the trail isn’t overly technical, making for an efficient hike through the scenic woodland landscape that can be enjoyed by hikers of almost every skill level.

In addition to the relaxing forest atmosphere, you will also be able to take in the majestic sights of some of the rugged mountain peaks in the area from their eastern side, including Mount Sir Donald, Uto Peak, and Terminal Peak. After you’ve reached the end of the trail, make your way back along the same route through the forest to return to your vehicle.
