Price & Hours
The visitor center at Logan Pass is located in the middle of the park off the Going-to-the-Sun Road, less than 20 miles west of the St. Mary visitor center and about 30 miles north of the Apgar Visitor Center. Offering maps and trip-planning information, the center also features exhibits, restrooms, water fountains, a bookstore, ranger-led guided hikes, parking and free shuttle service to the other two visitor centers.
Most recent visitors recommended taking the free shuttle service to the visitor center in Logan Pass and noted that many of the hiking trails start there, including the Highline Trail and the Hidden Lake Trail. Several hikers noted that even in July, it was cold and windy with snow on the ground, and recommended wearing multiple layers and appropriate shoes. Those who drove to the pass also commented on heavy traffic during high season, as well as the crowded and limited parking at the visitor center.
The visitor center is open daily with a schedule that coincides with the opening and closing of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, from late spring to late September. Access to the visitor center is free with park admission. Check the park website for operating hours and closures.
