Description

The Sir Donald Trail is a hiking trail located in Glacier National Park. Length - 5.1 km (one way) Hiking time 2.5 to 4 hours (uphill) Elevation change - 1250 to 2258 m (1008m) Trailhead - Illecillewaet Campground NOTE: Sir Donald trail now ends at the junction with Perley Rock Trail. Debris from a recent rockfall covers a section of the trail. If proceeding beyond trail end, please use extreme caution and be aware of the possibility of more falling rock. The upper Sir Donald Trail is recommended as a climbing access route only. Seasonal bridges are removed for the winter beginning late September. Creek crossings may be necessary after this time. Mount Sir Donald is a classic climb, and the trail leading to its base is a rigorous uphill hike. If you are looking for a way to test your wind and energy, this trail is for you. The trail ends abruptly in a narrow rocky col between Mount Sir Donald and Mount Uto. From this notch in the wall of the Selkirks, hikers can look across to the rolling meadows of the Bald Hills in eastern Glacier National Park.
