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.

There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, trek along Iceberg Lake Trail, appreciate the views at Logan Pass, and stroll through Highline Trail.
