This trail begins with a gentle walk along an old dirt road. One of the first things you’ll notice on this hike is the number of dead trees that have blown over after the massive Robert Fire of 2003. Before the fire, heavy brush and timber blocked the views but now Apgar Lookout is one of the Park’s most scenic hikes. Without the thick timber this hike is a hot one so best to start early in the morning on hot days. From the Lookout, you will have views down the entire length of Lake McDonald as well as the high peaks into the heart of glacier. Unfortunately these views are partially obstructed by trees and a TV transmitter tower.
