Crown of the Continent

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.
Get outdoors at Going-to-the-Sun Road and Logan Pass. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Grinnell Glacier, hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and get great views at Jackson Glacier Overlook.
