Having spent the evening in Polson and realizing I had to drive all the way back to Bigfork and then drive back down east of Polson near Condon on a different road, I almost skipped the hike to Glacier Lake and Heart Lake. That would have been a HUGE mistake!
Getting to Glacier and Heart Lake
The Jewel Basin Hiking Area is an absolute gem, and Glacier Lake and Heart Lake did not disappoint. The drive to the trailhead is 12 miles down a dirt road. At the beginning, the road is well graded, but as it climbs, the road narrows and gets rougher. That said, it is in good condition.HAPPY HIKING!
