Howdy and Winter Hiking Glacier National Park
After taking a winter hiking trip to Glacier National Park, we are back home and ready to introduce ourselves to you in our first episode of the MtnMisfits Podcast!
Climbing from the get-go, the trail to Fish Lake passes through an old-growth forest of red cedar, and western hemlock, which transitions to a dense spruce-fir forest as the trail ascends. Less than a mile from the trailhead, you enter the burned area from the 2017 Sprague Fire. Starting with a lightning strike on August 10 on the north side of Sprague Creek, the wildfire burned 16,982 acres over 2 months and destroyed the Sperry Chalet.
After hiking a shade more than 1.5 miles, you arrive at the Mt. Brown Trail junction, head to the right for a few hundred yards until you reach the Snyder Lake Trail junction. From here you cross over Snyder Creek by a great little bridge called Crystal Ford. From here it is a straight shot to Fish Lake through a beautiful spruce-fir forest.
