Sperry Chalet to Granite Park Chalet - time to hike?

Jump to last reply

We were able to book 2 nights at Sperry and 1 night at Granite Park back to back. We had planned on hiking out of Sperry, Natl. Park Shuttle to Logan Pass and then Highline Trail all the way to Granite Park.

However, the "estimated" hike time for Highline trail is like 6-7 hours. Not sure how long it will take us to come down from Sperry. Then we have to wait for a shuttle with seats on it, get to Logan Pass, refill water and head out.

Do we have enough time to do this? If so, how long to get down to Lake McDonald from Sperry? What time should we leave in order to try and get that 7am shuttle? And is the Highline Trail truly at 7 hour hike one way?

We are pretty fit - we run marathons, do triathlons, etc. So we can hoof it pretty quick. We live on the beach in Hawaii though so elevation will slow us a bit.

Mahalo!
Denise
