The Glacier National Park Hike That Was Closed For Being Too Dangerous
Glacier National Park's Huckleberry Lookout Trail in Montana poses a challenge to even advanced hikers, and it even gets closed intermittently due to its dangerous nature.
As you might have guessed based on the name, the trail is packed with huckleberry bushes. These just so happen to be a favorite calorie-dense snack of the grizzly bear.
The chance of running into bears skyrockets when huckleberries reach their peak ripeness in July, so the National Park Service closes the Huckleberry Lookout Trail in late summer.
The trail itself is also quite difficult, as it features steep elevation gains and treacherous terrain. However, its gorgeous view of Apgar Valley draws hikers to it regardless.
