Thanks to Fred Spicker for adding this peak.

Reynolds Mountain is a beautifully shaped horn located about 1.5 miles south of the Visitor Center at Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. It is named for Charles E. Reynolds, a writer for "Forest and Stream" magazine and friend of George Bird Grinnell.  Time wise, it is an easy day climb from the pass. The easiest route is the Southwestern Talus Slope Route, but more interesting and only slightly more difficult routes exist. One should check at the Visitor Center to learn the approach recommended in order to minimize damage to the fragile alpine vegetation of the area.

Please refer to A Climber's Guide to Glacier National Park by J. Gordon Edwards for information regarding the special dangers of climbing in this area before attempting this peak.

    This is an easy climb for beginners. Although easy this is still a dangous place. In my time I have known 3 people to be killed on this mountain.
  • Log #9475 - by Carey Chapman on Jan 30, 2003
    Great hike. I recommend traversing the goat trail facing Logan Pass. Great views and not bad exposure. Trail is wide across most of the face.
