    Route Description for Video Peak Trail

    The Video Peak Trail is a challenging uphill hiking route that will take you through an alpine valley before breaking off from the main trail on a northward path to the summit. This route initially follows the Balu Pass Trail as it climbs between the Cheops and Grizzly mountains. Due to the area being frequently inhabited by bears, the trail is often closed, so make sure to check the status of the route before setting out on your hike. Additionally, hikers looking to utilize this trail should always travel in groups of four or more, bring bear spray, and make lots of noise to avoid any potentially dangerous encounters.

    Setting out from the parking area, the trail climbs up through the heavily forested valley alongside the rushing waters of Connaught Creek before breaking out into a beautiful alpine meadow. From here, the route breaks towards the north on a course that leads up to the summit of Video Peak. Along this section of the trail, hikers will be able to take in the amazing views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Reaching the summit, you will be able to breathe the crisp mountain air and look out over the numerous peaks that characterize the rugged landscape within Glacier National Park. After taking in the sights, head back downhill towards the main trail and follow the creek to return to the parking area.
