Route Description for Bostock Creek Trail
The Bostock Creek Trail is a largely forested hiking route in Glacier National Park that follows closely alongside Bostock Creek and provides some scenic views of the surrounding mountains that loom over the valley. This trail is a bit overgrown in spots, and several of the bridges along the route are in ill-repair. In addition to this, there are few trail markings along the route, so make sure to bring a trail map or GPS in order to follow along the correct route. As with all routes in Glacier National Park, make sure to pack bear spray and travel in large groups.
While there is no summit with amazing views, the trail does pass through a beautiful stretch of forest and offers glimpses of the surrounding mountains through the tree cover. As you work your way along the trail and over several streams, you will eventually break out into a meadow with some great views of the alpine landscape. Reaching the end of the trail is somewhat anticlimactic, as there aren’t any real views; however, this does mean that you will get to experience all of the same highlights as you backtrack along the trail for your return journey.
