Rocky Point Trail
Rocky Point Trail is a majestic hike through the forest that reminds you of the damage done by countless wildfires that scorched a portion of Glacier National Park. Wisps of trees stand tall in front of Lake McDonald before the soaring mountains that surround you. This hike is unique in its history as most of the journey shows the damage done mostly by the Robert Fire that burned through almost 40,000 acres.
