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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Garden Wall and Baring Falls. Get in touch with nature at Lake Josephine and Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. Change things up with a short trip to The Polebridge Mercantile in Polebridge (about 50 minutes away). Spend the 5th (Wed) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's much more to do: trek along Iceberg Lake Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, explore the activities along Iceberg Lake, and take in the dramatic scenery at Apikuni Falls.
