Views from the Summit:
This is the famous view of Bearhat Mountain from the Hidden Lake Overlook.
Bearhat Mountain (8,684 feet) is located directly above Hidden Lake, and it is the prominent mountain that you see to the west when you are standing on the Hidden Lake Overlook. The views from Bear Hat are spectacular, especially looking back onto the Logan Pass Area. This flat-topped mountain is another famous mountain in Glacier National Park, and we hope you enjoy the photos from its summit.
Views from the Summit
Here's Shannon enjoying the view from the summit of Bear Hat Mountain looking east. The peak just to her right is Reynolds Mountain, and the peak just to her left is Going-to-the-Sun Mountain.
This is a view of the Logan Pass Area from Bear Hat Mountain. The Hidden Lake Overook is circled in this photo. We could see visitors on the Overlook, and they could see us standing on the summit! We are facing straight west.
Bear Hat Mountain provides incredible views of the peaks surrounding the Logan Pass area. Directly above Dave's head is Matahpi Peak, directly above Shannon's head is Going-to-the-Sun Mountain, and the sharp matterhorn to the right is Reynolds Mountain.
This is the classic view of the Logan Pass Area from Bear Hat Mountain. We are facing straight west.
This is a view of Cannon Mountain which is sitting directly behind Shannon. The camera is facing straight north. Beyond Cannon, to the right, is a partial view of the Lewis Range, which contains dozens of famous mountains such as Mount Gould, Mount Merritt and Mount Cleveland. The mountain range far in the distance to the left of Shannon is the Livingston Range, which is in the Polebridge Area of the Park and contains such icons as Mount Kintla and Mount Kinnnerly.
Altyn Peak is an incredible vantage point to view the Many Glacier Area.
This is a northwest view from the summit of Bear Hat. The mountain to the left side of the photo is the iconic Heaven's Peak, and beyond it is the Livingston Range. The mountain just behind us to the right is Cannon Mountain. To the left of the photo, out of view, is the Avalanche Lake area, with the lake thousands of feet below us (out of view).
In between Reynolds Mountain (right) and Going-to-the-Sun Mountain (left) is a view of the eastern prairie. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Minneapolis! (Well, maybe not that far.)
This is a view of the famous Sperry Glacier. The camera is facing south. Sperry Glacier is one of the largest Glaciers in the Park, and to see it up close and personal, you need to visit the Sperry Chalet.
