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.
Take a break from the city and head to Middle Fork of the Flathead and Goat Lick Overlook. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cracker Lake Hike and Baring Falls. When in Glacier National Park, make a side trip to see The Polebridge Mercantile in Polebridge, approximately 50 minutes away. Spend the 22nd (Thu) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. Spend the 20th (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, hike along Highline Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Swiftcurrent Lake, and admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass.
