  • Great hike by McDonald Creek! Add this to you Glacier bucket list. It’s easy and gorgeous views.
  • Did an awesome hike via McDonald creek trail. McDonald creek was absolutely breathtaking as it was flowing side by side most of the times throughout the hike. Sometimes it's gentle but at some spots, the intensity of the creek was overwhelming. Couple of Cool spots to sit and have a bite throughout the hike.
