Drove around Polebridge to get to the Logging Lake trailhead. The trail starts at the Logging Creek Ranger Station and follows Logging Creek up past Logging Lake to Grace Lake where we camped. Very beautiful with loads of wildflowers and birds. The trail starts out very open as you wander through the burn areas, but closes up and becomes a walk in the trees with glimpses into the lakes. Mud and mosquitos exist for most of the year, so be mentally prepared for that as well as having appropriate gear.
My hiking partner was Steven Gnam who is a gifted photographer with a distinct style. Check out his site at http://www.stevengnamphotography.com. He’s also a really cool guy and shares my desire to learn birds and flowers. We had a great time despite the conditions being very challenging. Check it below!

So is there a reason that your sleeping area was a ways away from the cooking area?
Loved seeing the Indian Paintbrush… my fav!
Nice work Jake! I especially like the reviews at the end of all these features!
Expect a similar hike when you do the Quartz Lake Loop, except with more mosquitoes. That was our least favorite Glacier hike. This may be a bad summer for mosquitoes in general so look for some sales on OFF.

I don’t know if you remember me from showing up at the Nelson’s BS a few times, but anyway, just wanted to say great job with all the hiking, and I really enjoy all the updates and reviews on the trails and conditions! Thanks for sharing!
I’m starting to get set up w/ a good new camera and wanting to hone my photography skills. Daylene has helped me out a bit, and suggested meeting up with you to get some good photog lessons/pointers… So maybe I can join you for a hike sometime this season!
Happy Trails 🙂
Jake, you make me laugh! I’m a sucker for puns like the one you made about the rocks on the tent. Anyway, I’ve started working through your blog from the beginning. Makes me miss the mountains(stuck in Illinois). Don’t know when I’ll be back to GNP, but it can’t be soon enough. Thanks for this epic series!!
[…] my project and we resolved to get out on one of my hikes in 2011. That trip ended up being one to Logging and Grace Lakes. It was muddy and raining on the way in and muddy with mosquitos on the way out. The saving grace […]
