From Siyeh Bend, the trail climbs under forest canopy for 2 miles before reaching a meadowland known as Preston Park, above. The open airy trail offers constant view from this point on. Climbing towards the Siyeh Pass – the saddle below.
This maybe the best day hike in GNP. The only blemish on this near perfect trail is the first 2 miles of boring forest trail. Otherwise the payoff at the top of pass viewing Barring Creek Valley and Sexton Glacier was almost without match in the park (ok, maybe Pitamakan Pass to Dawson Pass at Two Medicine). It also boasts as the highest maintained trail in GNP.

We re-entered an alpine forest for the last 3/4 mile and arrived at Sunrift Gorge for our ride.
