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.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Fri): explore the activities along Avalanche Lake, then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald, and then trek along Trail of the Cedars. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 5th (Sat): take some stellar pictures from Jackson Glacier Overlook, then admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, then take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, and finally appreciate the views at Logan Pass.
