“Experience pristine forests & alpine meadows”

At Glacier National Park, visitors can experience Glacier's pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude. The Park can relive the days of old through historic chalets, lodges, transportation, and stories of Native Americans.

Glacier National Park is located in the U.S. state of Montana, south from the Canadian borders of Alberta and British Columbia. The park encompasses over 1,000,000 acres (4,000 km2) and includes parts of two mountain ranges (sub-ranges of the Rocky Mountains), over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants and hundreds of species of animals. This vast pristine ecosystem is the centerpiece of what has been referred to as the "Crown of the Continent Ecosystem", a region of protected land encompassing 16,000 square miles.

Many day hikes can be taken in the park. Back-country camping is allowed at campsites along the trails. A permit is required and can be obtained from certain visitor centers or arranged for in advance. Much of Glacier's back country is usually inaccessible to hikers until early June due to accumulated snow pack and avalanche risk, and many trails at higher altitudes remain snow packed until July. Campgrounds that allow vehicle access are found throughout the park, most of which are near one of the larger lakes. The campgrounds at St. Mary and at Apgar are open year round, but conditions are primitive in the off-season, as the restroom facilities are closed and there is no running water. All campgrounds with vehicle access are usually open from mid-June until mid-September.

To me, this is America's most incredible National Park. Yeah, Yellowstone has its geysers, and Yosemite has El Capitan, but nothing compares to the raw scenery of Glacier. If you've never been here, and don't have it on your National Park bucket list, PUT IT ON THERE!

So far, we've been to Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Arches, & now Glacier. I truly understand why the Kootenai & Blackfeet tribes consider this place sacred. The landscape carved by centuries of glacier activity here has left us with indescribable beauty! We spent a week here - stayed at Apgar Village, Lake McDonald Lodge & St. Mary's Lodge. I think my favorite was Lake McDonald Lodge. Don't miss taking a Red Bus tour - we took the Western Alpine Tour & loved it! We took a boat tour of Lake McDonald & the old wooden boat takes ya back in time & the views are incredible. We also took a Jeep tour with Blackfeet Outfitters into the back country to see Moose, Bear, etc. - the weather was rainy, and we only found wild horses and a lot of "free range" cattle, but our guide Alger tried very hard to find em! He made that tour for us memorable.
Don't fail to visit Many Glacier - best views of the remaining glaciers there. The hiking here is awesome & wild life is all around. This is definitely a "bucket list national park" in my opinion too!

This is a bucket list National Park. If you haven't been, add it to your list. Gorgeous. A week isn't enough time to see all there is to see and do all there is to do. Drive the Going to the Sun Road. It will have its white knuckle moments but the views are absolutely worth it! Remember this park crosses over to our neighbor to the north (Canada). Be sure to check that side out too. Can't wait to go back!

If you take the Empire Builder Amtrak train, it goes right through this park and you get views inaccessible any other way. The train winds around the edge of the mountains at some points and it's impossible not to look up and the amazing beauty.

This is one of the most incredible national parks in the entire system. Lake McDonald is amazing. The local fishing was awesome and hard to beat. Hikers paradise and the going to the Sun Road. Logan pass is an awesome place to see. Big horn sheep abound, moose, and other wild life. In July this place was a botanic garden you could hike through for hours!

Oh my gosh, do it! The scenery the glacier water swimming, the wild life, all amazing! But camp inside the park! Our one regret is that we camped outside the park.

By far one of the most impressive and gorgeous national parks I've had the good fortune to see in my life. The mountains are stunning, and the hiking is phenomenal. Swimming in a glacial lake during my time here is one of my favorite things I've ever done.

After spending the summer dealing with the heat and severe summer storms in Florida, I think I want to go here next summer.
