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.
You've now added Going-to-the-Sun Road to your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Garden Wall and St.Mary Falls. Escape the urban bustle at Virginia Falls and Iceberg Lake Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Glacier National Park: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram) and Apgar Lookout Trail (in West Glacier). Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at St. Mary Lake, trek along Trail of the Cedars, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.
