Glacier National Park

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.
Escape the urban bustle at McDonald Creek and Siyeh Pass. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Virginia Falls and St.Mary Falls. The adventure continues: trek along Cracker Lake Hike, stroll through Trail of the Cedars, admire the sheer force of Apikuni Falls, and head outdoors with John's Lake Loop.
