You might be tempted to burst into song at the glacier-carved mountains, hanging valleys, and lush carpets of wildflowers that surround this 1914 chalet in the park, perched on a rocky outcropping at the nexus of four trails.
The 7.6-mile, moderate Highline Trail is the most popular, with views of glacier peaks and the park's rocky Garden Wall along the Continental Divide.
The 12-room backcountry shelter offers bunk beds and a kitchen where guests take turns cooking. The view from the front porch is pure bliss: rocky peaks, clouds, and sky. —Caroline Patterson
