The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
On the 25th (Sat), take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, then get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, and then trek along Iceberg Lake Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, then admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, and then explore the activities along McDonald Creek.

For where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Glacier National Park route planner.

Kalispell to Glacier National Park is an approximately 2-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in August, and nighttime lows around 10°C. On the 27th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Whitefish.
